NORMAN, Okla. – Get ready for another round of traffic tie ups in Norman.

Starting Thursday at 7 a.m., the Oklahoma Department of Transportation will close the eastbound outside lane on the Main Street Bridge over I-35.

It’s all part of the Main St. exit construction project.

Traffic has increased so much over the bridge with the exits being closed that potholes have formed.

Crews said they plan to have the lanes closed just for one day, to make repairs.

Last week, the Lindsey Street Bridge was closed for similar repairs.
