ODOT: Drivers should expect significant delays along I-235, I-44

OKLAHOMA CITY – Drivers in Oklahoma City may need to find an alternate route as construction projects continue throughout the metro.

Officials with the Oklahoma Department of Transportation say drivers should expect a significant shift of the northbound and southbound I-235 lanes between N. 36th St. and I-44 this week.  Construction is expected to continue throughout the summer of 2018.y.

The I-235 ramps from N. 50th St. remain closed through summer. Drivers should avoid this area entirely as construction continues through early 2019 and lanes are narrowed.

Motorists are advised to continue to use their ‘Off Broadway’ alternate routes such as I-35, Lake Hefner Parkway, I-44, I-40 and Lincoln Blvd.

Beginning July 9, officials with the Oklahoma Department of Transportation will begin repairs on I-44 between May and N.W. 23rd St.

Authorities say the construction project includes the large bridge over Lake Hefner Parkway and N.W. 39th St.
