A concrete barrier will be put in on the west side of South Yale Avenue starting Monday and continuing on Tuesday. The construction will force disruptions to traffic, including the closure of one lane.

Between the hours of 9 a.m.-3 p.m., traffic will only move northbound on Yale between 91st and 81st Streets. The barrier will be installed between the 8500 and 8700 blocks of Yale.

Southbound traffic will only be open between the 8100 and 8500 blocks for local traffic. Drivers heading southbound will not be able to drive straight through from 81st to 91st Streets.

Tulsa City Councilor Phil Lakin said the barriers will remain in place for safety until the street is reconstructed in a planned widening project.
