OKLAHOMA CITY – Drivers may need to find an alternate route as crews begin repairing a busy intersection in northwest Oklahoma City.
Last month, the May Avenue bridge that crosses over Northwest Expressway collapsed when a semi hauling a boom lift hit the bridge.
The driver of the truck told police thought he could make it under the bridge since he passed under the other side earlier in the day with no issue.
One side of the bridge has a maximum height of 14 feet and eight inches, but the side that collapsed only has a maximum height of 14 feet and four inches.
However, on June 24th, city officials announced the May Ave. bridge over Northwest Expressway would be temporarily closed while crews repair the bridge.
The bridge will remain closed from June 29th to July 2nd.
Drivers are encouraged to begin planning alternate routes in the area.
