Changes Come To Arkansas River Crossing

Posted: Updated:

As the cones come down, changes come up for one major Tulsa-area road construction project.

Crews are finishing up the new two-tier westbound I-244 Arkansas River bridge just south of downtown Tulsa.

Crews will begin the process of shifting westbound traffic  onto the new structure Wednesday evening at 7:00pm. By 6:00am Thursday, three lanes of traffic should be open for cars.  Eastbound will remain on the old bridge and limited to two lanes.

ODOT reminds workers to be very careful and watch for shifted lanes.

However, all the on and off ramp closures will remain in place.Westbound US-64/SH-51 off-ramp to eastbound I-244/westbound US-64/SH-51 (south to west leg IDL)
Southbound US-75/westbound US-64/SH-51 ramp to westbound I-244/southbound US-75
Eastbound I-244 on-ramp from 17th St., and various lane closures on 17th St.
Westbound I-244 on-ramp from 7th St.

ODOT reminds drivers that  even though traffic is shifted to this new bridge it is important to remember the overall westbound I-244 project is not yet complete.

Crews will continue to construct the bridge's second deck below the traffic level for future train tracks and pedestrian walkways.  

The old eastbound bridge is set for replacement sometime in 2013.
