OTA Says Morgan Rd. Temporarily Closed For Resurfacing Near Kilpatrick Turnpike
Monday, February 24th 2020, 7:33 AM CST
The Oklahoma Turnpike Authority is asking drivers to avoid this portion of Morgan Road between Southwest 44th and 59th Streets for the next two weeks as construction starts.
The OTA said crews will be resurfacing Morgan Road.
Drivers will be able to still get on to the turnpike, but due to the ongoing construction, different lanes of North and Southbound Morgan Road will be closed depending on the day.
The turnpike authority said both lanes will never be closed at the same time.
The OTA also emphasizes while they're asking drivers to avoid the area, people who live near Morgan road will be permitted to go through.
This two week project is just a part of the overall Kilpatrick Turnpike expansion. That 7 mile project will connect Southwest Oklahoma City to the metro between Interstate 40 and Airport Road.
The westbound lanes of that extension opened up to drivers in January.
