More Commuter Headaches Monday On I-244

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.
