TULSA, Oklahoma - The Oklahoma Department of Transportation says its reconstruction project on Interstate 244 will begin a new phase Tuesday on the northeast corner of Tulsa's downtown Inner Dispersal Loop.

ODOT says the next step involves closing the westbound I-244 off-ramps to north- and southbound Highway 75 for the rest of July.

ODOT recommends drivers use the north, west and east legs of the downtown loop for access to Highway 75.

The I-244 reconstruction project is scheduled to be complete next year.
