All lanes of Interstate 244 are open again.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol closed the westbound ramp from Interstate 44 near 129th East Avenue on Thursday morning because of a semi rollover crash.  For several hours, while the wreck was being cleared, westbound traffic was diverted to westbound I-44.

Crews had to cut out the top of the semi-trailer and use machines to take out all the school bus axles that it was hauling.

Troopers say the driver of the semi wasn’t hurt in the wreck.
