The widening project at I-44 and Lewis is causing a mess for drivers.
Last month FOX23 looked at a detour that forces drivers into a south Tulsa neighborhood between Peoria and Lewis.
FOX23's Melissa Hawkes found neighbors are going to new lengths to make sure drivers don't get lost in the detour.
A few says ago neighbors put up homemade detour signs to help drivers who have to detour through the neighborhood go the right direction.
"Lewis is impossible to get through almost every direction. I've driven miles around many times to go north," said Deborah Hauck, who lives in the area.
She noticed a detour sign across from her house a few days ago.
"I don't know who it was," she said.
FOX23 found at least four handwritten detour signs in the neighborhood. Hauck says it's helped keep drivers off her street.
"They will start to turn down this street they will slow down and look at the sign and then keep going straight," she said.
Hauck says she's tempted to make these signs even bigger.
"Just go get some plywood and paint orange and black stripes so they don't miss it," she said.
Neighbors are looking forward to the signs and barrels coming down when the project is scheduled to wrap up at the end of the year.
