Friday, the inside lane of the BA Expressway between Columbia and Sheridan will be closed as they work. The lane closure schedule begins Friday at 9 a.m. through Monday at 6 a.m.

The schedule will continue through the weekend of January 5th, and again through the weekend of January 12th if needed.

Workers hope to have all street lights back across the city by the end of 2018.  

The project is costing Tulsa a little less than $10-million.
