FLOODING: Highway Conditions 5-24-19 as of 11 a.m.
Beverly Bryant - May 24, 2019 11:32 am
EDITOR’S NOTE: With historic rainfall since winter 2018 through the spring, many roads are closed, including some construction projects due to rivers and creeks rising too high for some work to continue. As water levels subside, ODOT and the Oklahoma Turnpike Authority will assess existing pavement conditions for needed repairs and also construction timetables for further changes and updates. The department is not able to predict closures and conditions continue to change rapidly statewide. The agency will keep highways open for as long as it is safe to do so.
Be alert to any water over driving lanes and don’t drive around barricades. Drivers are encouraged to be prepared and partner with these agencies as they address these needs and possible delays. ODOT wants drivers to be prepared for more inconvenience and travel impacts this summer for repairs after this spring’s flooding.
