OKLAHOMA CITY - Drivers in north Oklahoma City may soon need to find a different way to get home.

Beginning the first week of February, authorities say work will begin on a major reconstruction plan.

The plan focuses on Hwy 74 between Memorial Rd. and N.W. 164th St.

Officials say it is one of Oklahoma City's most congested and fastest growing highway corridors.

As the number of construction signs in the area continues to grow, so do concerns from drivers and local businesses.

Oklahoma Department of Transportation officials say the highway will remain open throughout construction.

However, N.W. 164th St. and N.W. 150th St. will experience short-term closures.

The project is expected to cost $34 million to complete.

In order to inform drivers about the project, Oklahoma Department of Transportation is holding an informative meeting on Feb. 5 at Crossings Church at 5:30 p.m.
