ODOT is making progress on work at the I-44 and Highway 75 interchange.
The $90 million project started on January 25, widening and reconstructing all pavements on I-44 from four lanes to six lanes between the west side of the Arkansas River Bridge and Union Avenue.
They're also replacing five bridges and slightly reconfiguring all four cloverleaf ramps at the interchange.
While I-44 and US-75 have remained open during the project, at times, lanes are being narrowed and the corridors may only have one lane open to traffic.
There will also be ramp closures at the cloverleaf. Alternate routes such as I-244 should be considered, especially during peak travel times.

Overall completion is scheduled for early 2023 if the weather permits.
