CATOOSA, OK -- All lanes of westbound I-44 are now open at the 161st East Avenue junction, following emergency bridge repairs.

All lanes of traffic of east and westbound traffic on I-44 are now open at this junction.

As part of this project, all lanes of 165th East Avenue under the bridges remain closed to traffic, and are anticipated to open sometime next week. ODOT reports there cannot be a specific time estimated for this opening, as these lanes cannot be opened until they are deemed safe for traffic.

According to an ODOT report, if unforeseen conditions arise again and warrant any additional closures, ODOT will immediately act for the safety of the public and close any or all lanes of this bridge again.

Both bridges are currently under contract for replacement. This repair work is expected to keep the I-44 bridges operational throughout construction of the new bridges. This project began in late January.
