I-244 Narrows Heading East

I-244 eastbound between Memorial and 169 is back down to one open lane, starting Tuesday morning.

"This is another bridge deck that crews will be pouring and then leaving to set," said the Oklahoma Department of Transportation's Kenna Mitchell. "We are hoping that we can get the strength we need on the new bridge deck and have traffic restored by Saturday afternoon."

On Saturday, traffic will return to two lanes.

Mitchell says last time this corridor was down to one lane for a previous bridge pouring, the department received reports of delays of up to half an hour or more.

She urges finding an alternate route if possible.
