I-35 narrows south of US-177 Friday; work continues near Tonkawa, Billings in northern Oklahoma through winter 2017

Team Radio Marketing Group - June 19, 2017 11:21 am

Northbound and southbound I-35 will be narrowed to one lane in each direction at West Braman Road/West Bender Road (mile marker 230) at Braman just south of US-177 in Kay County, beginning at 8 a.m. Friday through winter 2017 for bridge reconstruction.

Access to I-35 from West Braman Road will remain open during the project except when I-35 traffic is temporarily rerouted to the on- and off-ramps for bridge removal and bridge beam installation.

I-35 traffic will be detoured to the on- and off-ramps at West Braman Road/West Bender Road (mile marker 230) from 8 p.m. Friday to 10 a.m. Saturday for bridge removal. During this time, I-35 will be inaccessible from West  Braman Road/West Bender Road.

Motorists should expect delays and congestion during this closure and are strongly encouraged to use SH-11 to US-177 as an alternate route.

Other nearby ongoing I-35 bridge projects include:

  • Northbound and southbound I-35 traffic at Fountain Road (mile marker 211) near Tonkawa in Kay County is narrowed to one lane in each direction through early fall; and
  • Northbound and southbound I-35 at SH-15 (mile marker 203) near Billings in Noble County is narrowed to one lane in each direction through summer.
  • Motorists still may access I-35 from those interchanges when the ramps are open.

In September, the Oklahoma Transportation Commission awarded an $8.8 million contract for this work to OBC Inc. of Edmond.
