Interchange improvement project begins Monday at I-44 and US-169

Wednesday, November 02, 2022

A previous version of this advisory contained the wrong ramp designation for the new bridge. The corrected version is below.

An approximately $16 million interchange improvement project begins Monday, Nov. 7, at I-44 and US-169. The most significant portion of this project will be the construction of a new eastbound I-44 to northbound US-169 ramp on a new bridge adjacent to the current bridge over I-44. Other work includes pavement rehabilitation on other ramps throughout the interchange and rehabilitation of the US-169 bridge over I-44. Initial impacts to traffic include:

  • I-44 will be narrowed to two lanes in both directions at US-169,
  • Northbound US-169 will be narrowed to two lanes at I-44,
  • Motorists traveling from westbound I-44 to northbound US-169 will have a limited merge area, and
  • The speed limit will be reduced to 55 MPH on both I-44 and US-169.

Drivers are urged to use extra caution throughout the work zone and expect delays, especially during peak travel times.

This project is expected to be completed in late 2023. The Oklahoma Transportation Commission awarded the contract for this project to Manhattan Road and Bridge Co. in July 2022.
