Ted Zachary, an engineer with the Oklahoma Department of Transportation in Perry, said Monday that a planned project to work on the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway is expected to begin Wednesday.

Zachary said he was notified by BNSF that U.S. 177 would close between U.S. Highway 412 and U.S. Highway 64 by 8 a.m. Wednesday and would reopen after 5 p.m. Thursday.

Southbound traffic on U.S. 177 will be detoured onto State Highway 15 west. Signs will direct traffic.
