NORMAN, Okla.- More detours and construction zones will be popping up all around Norman in the coming months.

Officials with the Oklahoma Department of Transportation say crews will reconstruct the south half of the I-35/ Highway 9 East interchange.

The $12 million project will focus on building new ramps from I-35 to SH-9 East.

Organizers say the construction should have very little impact on the 75,000 drivers who travel the route every day.

Another project to reconstruct the I-35 and Lindsey St. interchange is scheduled to begin in 2014.

In all, 32 contracts were awarded by ODOT to improve bridges, highways, interstates and roads in 24 counties.
