Residents heading back to Oklahoma from the OU-Texas game might want to keep an eye on traffic.
As of 5:55 p.m. Saturday, major arteries like Interstate 35 look clear. There is a slowdown through Denton and traffic around the stadium, according to updates posted by agencies about 5:55 p.m.
As a side note, the City of Oklahoma City lists traffic updates on its website, and Google Maps also provides traffic updates if you select “Traffic” as a layer you would like to see on the map. And the Texas Department of Transportation also provides a live traffic map as well.
