I-35 narrows at Fountain Road south of Tonkawa, SH-15 near Billings for bridge projects

Team Radio Marketing Group - March 27, 2017 3:45 pm

Interstate 35 will narrow to one lane in each direction at Fountain Road (at mile marker 211) near Tonkawa in Kay County and the Fountain Road bridge over I-35 will close at 8 a.m. Friday through early fall for bridge reconstruction.

I-35 traffic will be diverted to the on- and off-ramps at Fountain Road from 8 p.m. Friday to 10 a.m. Saturday for bridge removal. I-35 will be inaccessible from Fountain Road during this time.

Additionally, I-35 remains narrowed to one lane in each direction at State Highway 15 (mile marker 203) near Billings in Noble County and the SH-15 bridge over I-35 is closed through summer 2017 for bridge reconstruction. The I-35 on- and off-ramps at SH-15 will remain open to traffic.

SH-15 traffic will be detoured to SH-74, US-412, US-77 and US-60.

In September, the Oklahoma Transportation Commission awarded an $8.8 million contract for this work to OBC Inc. of Edmond. The contract also includes replacement of the Bender Road bridge over I-35 in Kay County, with reconstruction anticipated to start by early summer.
