OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- The Oklahoma Department of Transportation will halt construction work on Interstate 35 in southern Oklahoma for fans driving to the Texas-Oklahoma football game.

ODOT spokesman David Meuser says all lanes will open Thursday afternoon through the two main construction projects near Ardmore and Pauls Valley. He says construction work will stop starting at 6 a.m. Friday and will resume Monday.

OU will play No. 21 Texas Saturday afternoon in Dallas.

Meuser said ODOT tries to plan construction work around fall football season and the holiday season.

He says drivers can get traffic updates on Twitter from both the Oklahoma Department of Transportation[@OKDOT] and the Texas Department of Transportation[@TxDOT].
