TULSA, OKLAHOMA -- Tulsa motorists on U.S. Highway 75 at the I-44 junction will need to take note.

All lanes of northbound 75 were opened to traffic at noon Tuesday.

However, drivers still need to be alert for some lane closures.

The Oklahoma Department of Transportation says due to equipment issues, crews are completing the final striping operations on the northbound US-75 bridge deck over Mooser Creek.

Drivers can expect continued various lane closures on north and southbound US-75 at this location until further notice. The northbound US-75 off-ramp to eastbound I-44 remains open to traffic at this time. Crews will replace a bridge deck there.

The left lane of southbound US-75 remains closed at this location until further notice.

ODOT says this is part of an on-going project to replace four bridge decks near the US-75/I-44 junction.
