AlertOff.gif

TRAFFIC ADVISORY

AlertOff.gif

Motorists can expect shoulder closures on the eastbound and westbound I-44/Turner Turnpike between Bristow (mm 197) and mm 203 near Heyburn in Creek County through summer 2024 as work begins to widen the turnpike to six lanes in this area. Motorists can expect narrow lanes through the 6-mile work zone toward Bristow as well as reduced speed limits. SH-66 will be intermittently narrowed where it intersects with the I-44/Turner Turnpike at mm 202 through fall for the construction of new interchange ramps.

STATUS

T-26012 – Active Construction

SUMMARY

Eastbound and westbound I-44/Turner Turnpike will be widened to six lanes between SH-66 at Heyburn (mm 203) to just east of Bristow at mm 197 in Creek County. This just more than 6-mile project connects with the previous six-lane widening completed during Driving Forward from Sapulpa to Kellyville. This project will include a new interchange at SH-66. This is the second, single largest dollar construction project to be awarded in OTA’s history at more than $98 million. Construction started in late February 2024 and work is expected to complete in early spring 2026, weather permitting.


TRAFFIC IMPACT

  • During construction, traffic will remain open to two lanes in each direction, but motorists can expect significant lane shifts and possible night-time closures narrowing to one lane in each direction. They also can expect intermittent rolling roadblocks and reduced speed in the work zone. There is the possibility of width restrictions within the work zone as well.

  • Motorists also can expect narrowed shoulders and rolling roadblocks on SH-66 (mm 203) where new interchange ramps will be connected to the state highway.

  • More than 37,000 vehicles travel this section of the Turner Turnpike, on average. It’s estimated that more than 63,000 vehicles per day, on average, could travel this section by 2041.
