Big Change at I-44 and Lewis Construction Site

I-44 traffic has shifted to new section of pavement at the Lewis Avenue bridge.

Monday's commute looks a little different for Tulsa drivers on Interstate 44.

A new section of pavement opened under the Lewis Avenue bridge.

Eastbound traffic was shifted to the newly completed section of the highway on Sunday. Westbound traffic will be moved into the new lanes before the evening rush hours on Monday.

While the new pavement is complete, the project is not done. Lewis Avenue remains closed as crews finish bridge and side street work.

The $38 million project is scheduled to finish in Fall 2014, according to the Oklahoma Department of Transportation's website.
