Motorists who use one of Oklahoma City's busiest interstate interchanges may want to give themselves more time to reach their destinations beginning next week.
Most of the construction will take place at night on the Interstate 44-Interstate 235/Broadway Extension interchange, according to the Oklahoma Transportation Department.
The construction mostly will affect eastbound motorists on I-44 who use the southbound exit to get on I-235 and westbound I-44 motorists who use the northbound exit to get on the Broadway Extension.
The project will replace the eastbound I-44 ramp to southbound I-235.
The new ramp will begin farther west on I-44 near Western Avenue and be tied into southbound I-235 farther south of the current ramp, near NW 50.
The work should be competed this spring.
It also includes work through August to lengthen and add a lane to the westbound I-44 ramp to Broadway Extension to help traffic flow.
The ramp is scheduled to be replaced in 2019.
Beginning Monday, the eastbound I-44 ramps to north- and southbound I-235 will close nightly from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. through July 27.
