OKLAHOMA CITY -

The North and Southbound lanes of I-235  reopened between North 36th Street and I-44 around 3 p.m. Sunday. 

The Interstate reopened earlier then expect after being closed at 7 p.m. Friday for the removal of the railroad bridge that was over the interstate. 

ODOT said the removal of the 277-foot-long railroad bridge allows for the space needed to widen the interstate to six lanes, plus auxiliary lanes.

The $88 million project to widen the interstates is expected to complete in 2019, according to ODOT officials.
