OKLAHOMA CITY – Officials say nearly $10 million will be spent to ‘rehabilitate’ four miles of I-35 in Oklahoma County.

The Oklahoma Department of Transportation says four miles of I-35 in northern Oklahoma County and two miles of I-40 in west Oklahoma City.

I-35 will be improved between N.E. 122nd St. in Oklahoma City to just north of Second St. in Edmond, and I-40 will be improved from just west of May Ave. to Meridian.

Crews will begin replacing cracked concrete sections and the shoulders will be resurfaced in certain areas.

Each day, about 70,000 vehicles cross the affected section of I-35 , while I-40 carries approximately 126,000 vehicles.

The work will start sometime next spring and will take about a year to complete, an ODOT spokesperson said.
