I-235 Construction Project Alternate Routes


Thousands of motorists will be impacted by the latest construction project on I-235.

The Interstate will close for three days upon completion of the project. Starting Wednesday evening, all I-235 traffic between I-44 and N.E. 36th Street just north of downtown will be re-routed.

If you're traveling North or South, city officials recommend using North Classen Blvd. and North Martin Luther King Avenue.

Oklahoma City commuters can jump on N.E. 36th St., N.E. 23rd St. and East Reno Avenue traveling in and out of downtown.

Motorists who need to access the state capitol should use Lincoln Blvd.

Last week crews started demolishing the 50th Street bridge. By Wednesday, the lanes on I-235 near North 50th will be lowered 3 feet to make clearance for the future bridge. The asphalt work will be completed to move traffic over onto temporary lanes. The  I-44 Eastbound ramp will re-connect to the I-235 Southbound Ramp, with some drainage work completed.

These are phases three and four of a seven-phase project, expected to be completed by 2020. The future phases are scheduled for 2-day weekend closures.
