OKLAHOMA CITY –┬áMotorists are starting early 2014 with a much improved ramp at one of the busiest interchanges in the state. The new eastbound I-44 ramp to southbound I-235 is scheduled to open Saturday, nearly three months ahead of schedule.

In addition, the eastbound I-44 on-ramp from Western Ave. which had been closed as part of the project, will reopen Saturday also.

The $9 million ramp reconstruction project replaces the eastbound I-44 ramp to southbound I-235 with a longer ramp which connects to I-44 further east and to southbound I-235 further south to allow for safer merging between the two roadways and longer acceleration and deceleration lanes.
