TULSA, OK -- There is an additional detour for motorists who take I-44 through Tulsa. 

Starting Tuesday, the westbound on-ramp at Peoria Avenue will be shut down. 

It is part of the work to widen the interstate between Yale and the Arkansas River.  With the Riverside Drive ramps already closed, drivers going west will have to get on at Lewis.

The Oklahoma Department of Transportation admits it's a headache, but says the $330 million project will be worth it when it's completed in late 2012.
