Interstate closed in Oklahoma City because of bridge damage
OKLAHOMA CITY – Eastbound Interstate 240 is closed in Oklahoma City after a construction vehicle struck a bridge.
The Oklahoma Department of Transportation says the eastbound interstate was closed at Anderson Road just west of the Interstate 40 junction early Monday because of damage to the bridge.
The transportation department says there is damage to the bridge’s guardrail and a concrete barrier wall that was in place for an ongoing resurfacing project.
Eastbound traffic is being diverted onto Anderson Road, and drivers can also exit at Sooner Road. The closure is expected to last through the Monday morning commute.
