The trip down I-244 into Tulsa is getting tougher for motorists.
Starting Monday at 7:00, crews will close all east bound lanes between 129th east Avenue and the I-44 junction.
This closure will last until January, according to ODOT.
Drivers will be detoured to southbound Highway 169 and then onto eastbound I-44. Local traffic can still use eastbound I-244 to Garnett Rd. or 129th E. Avenue.
The closure is part of a major project to completely replace highway pavement and rebuild crumbling bridges.
