Lane Closures On Elm Street Will Take Place On January 5th.
On January 5, 2017, the Oklahoma Turnpike Authority (OTA) contractors will be working on the East Bound “on ramp” and the West Bound “off ramp” at Elm St. Beginning at 9:00 AM contractors will close the ramps to install and switch to the new toll equipment. The West Bound “off ramp” should re-open by 11:00 AM. The East Bound “on ramp” should re-open by 1:00 PM. During the ramp closures drivers should use the Riverside Drive or US75 access to the Creek Turnpike.
During this period, OTA contractors will also be working on the traffic signals on Elm St.. Elm St. will be restricted to one lane in each direction and the traffic signals will be inoperable. There will be 4-way stop signs set up at the ramps and 101st/Aquarium Drive on Elm Street. Lane closures will be shifting throughout the day as needed to complete the required work. All work should be completed that afternoon.
Oklahoma Highway Patrol will be present on the turnpike to help with traffic control on the highway. Contractor employees will be present on Elm Street moving traffic control signs and barricades as needed to provide a safe work zone for the workers.
During this construction activity expect delays and shifting lane closures.
If weather prevents this work from taking place on January 5th it will be rescheduled for January 10th.
