Next Phase of I-244 Construction Set to Begin, Changing Access to OSU-Tulsa

ConstructionAccording to the Oklahoma Department of Transportation (ODOT), the first phase of construction on Tulsa’s Inner Dispersal Loop (IDL) is nearing completion and access to the westbound lanes of I-244 is tentatively scheduled to reopen early next week.

Upon the reopening of the westbound lanes, the next phase of the large construction project will immediately begin. Traffic will be switched to the newly reconstructed section of I-244 and the eastbound direction of the north leg of the IDL will be closed. Access to OSU-Tulsa from Cincinnati/Detroit Avenues will most likely be open in the westbound direction and closed in the eastbound direction. This phase of construction is expected to take about 200 days to complete.

Continue to check the online detour map for updated alternate routes to OSU-Tulsa throughout the construction project.
