NORMAN, Oklahoma -

Folks who live in the south metro will be happy campers when the clock strikes midnight Wednesday night. That's when ODOT will re-open the Main Street and I-35 Interchange for the first time in several months. 

ODOT began the $31-million project in January of last year. Crews widened the Main Street Bridge from four to six lanes, and widened I-35 North and South of the Main Street Bridge from four to six lanes. 

Bruce Milner is General Manager of Dillard Group Real Estate in Norman. 

"We're excited because people are going to stop here and do business, and the first thing they're going to do is move to Norman," he said.  

Phyllis Duffey owns "Cutting Edge" Salon on Main, just east of the Main Street bridge.

"You know I am very excited," she said. 

Duffey says legions of OU football fans this year won't have to deal with the game day traffic detours the construction caused last season.
