    • Construction continues on the $6 million resurfacing project
    • Work ends in Summer 2018

    Drivers using Highway 169 should prepare for changes to their route again. 

    The latest closure in the $6 million resurfacing project closes the westbound Broken Arrow Expressway ramp to Highway 169 south on Tuesday. 

    • Drivers can follow a detour on the cloverleafs at the US-169/US-65/SH-51 interchange to get around the closure. 
    • Drivers on 169 South continue west to the I-44/US-64/SH-51 interchange and follow the detour on the cloverleafs to loop back to US-169.

    The resurfacing project tackles a stretch of Highway 169 from I-44 to the BA. It began in September and should wrap up Summer 2018.

    The construction includes patchwork and bridge joint repairs. 

    The end result should be a better driving experience for the 102,000 to 123,000 drivers who traverse it daily.
