Road construction starting Monday along a busy Tulsa highway could impact your drive.

This $4 million project along I-44 in Tulsa will pay for road and bridge improvements, and ODOT is warning drivers now to come up with an alternate route.

ODOT will begin closing lanes Monday evening near I-44 and the Arkansas River bridge.

Crews will be repairing deck joints on the bridge and resurfacing the highway to the I-244 junction. 

Both east and westbound traffic will be narrowed, which is expected to cause a lot of congestion, especially during rush hour.

ODOT expects this project is be finished by early next year.
