• Interstate 244/U.S. 169 corridor: I-244 closed at 129th E Avenue. Expect significant delays in this corridor, especially during peak travel times. Locate an alternate route if possible.

All lanes of eastbound I-244 are closed between 129th E Avenue and the Interstate 44 junction; use southbound U.S. 169 to eastbound I-44 as a detour.

Various lane closures eastbound and westbound I-244 between the I-44 split to near Memorial Drive.

• I-244/Arkansas bridge replacement project: Traffic shifted, ramps closed at southwest corner Inner Dispersal Loop.

Drivers should be alert as crews move westbound I-244 traffic off the detour route and onto the new multimodal bridge over the Arkansas River south of downtown Tulsa. Westbound I-244 is expected to have three open lanes, and eastbound I-244 will continue to have two open lanes until further notice. Even though traffic is shifted to this new bridge, drivers should remain alert to crews, equipment and reduced speeds on both the eastbound and westbound bridges in this corridor
