OKLAHOMA CITY - Get ready for major delays on one Oklahoma City road.
Officials with the Oklahoma Department of Transportation say W. Memorial Rd. will be under construction for five months.
"We do know that traffic will be narrowed to one lane," said Brenda Perry with ODOT. "They plan to work on one direction at a time. And it will be narrowed to one lane so we do expect it to be rather congested in there.'
The project will begin July 9 as crews overhaul the road between Penn and Portland in both directions.
Crews will be using both asphalt and concrete to make longer-lasting road surfaces. They will also be working on sidewalks, drains and gutters.
ODOT says the multi-million dollar project will “extend the life” of Memorial Rd. and drivers should prepare for lane closures and delays over the next several months.
The agency says crews will be working overnight to help eliminate congestion during the daytime.
