New ramp on southbound I-235 to open Friday morning

FROM STAFF REPORTS Published: July 19, 2012


Beginning early Friday, the new southbound Interstate 235 ramp to westbound I-44 will reopen, officials at the Oklahoma Department of Transportation said Thursday.


They added that the new NW 63 ramps to I-235 and I-44 "will remain closed until early August in order to tie it into the new roadway."


ODOT officials urged drivers to remain cautious in the area as work continues. 

"Motorists need to be aware of changes to traffic patterns following the I-235/I-44 ramp opening," officials said. "The entrance to the new southbound I-235 ramp to westbound I-44 begins further north than the previous ramp. The newly redesigned interchange features a longer ramp which will allow for safer, more efficient travel between the two interstates."
