TULSA, Oklahoma -- Driving on I-44 over the Arkansas River is going to be challenging for the next couple of days as people get used to traffic flow changes.
The reason is construction work to widen I-44 between Riverside Drive and Peoria.
The Oklahoma Department of Transportation says westbound drivers on I-44 need to be aware that the westbound bridge will be handling both east and westbound traffic.
As part of the project, the eastbound I-44 on-ramp from Riverside Drive will be closed temporarily while the eastbound off-ramp to Riverside Drive will be closed permanently.
The Oklahoma Highway Patrol is stepping up enforcement of the speed limits in the construction zone to get drivers to slow down.
The projected completion date is 2013.
