TULSA, OK --  Construction begins this week on the next phase of the Gilcrease Expressway.  This latest phase will be from the Tisdale Parkway to 41st West Avenue.

The new stretch will be a two-lane highway on a four-lane right of way, which the city of Tulsa says will allow for widening in the future.

In a news release, Tulsa officials say beginning Thursday Osage Drive will be closed to through traffic between Apache Street and 36th Street North.

A detour route will be posted.

The closure will be in effect until completion of the project in May 2011.

The first two phases of the 2.2 mile project consist of grading, drainage, two storm water detention ponds, a traffic signal at the Gilcrease Expressway and Tisdale Parkway and paving on Osage Drive where it will intersect with the Gilcrease Expressway.

A short stretch of Osage Drive will be reconstructed on a new alignment.

Tulsa officials say project funding includes $2.6 million from the 2005 Bond Issue as a match for federal Surface Transportation Program funding for the remaining cost.
