As logistics-driven companies continue to move their headquarters to the Greater Oklahoma City area, the state has started working on another project to make it easier for everyone to get across the city.

The Oklahoma Department of Transportation started in the spring on expanding the Interstate 235 and Interstate 44 interchange.

While traffic can still maneuver through the interchange both ways, drivers will soon start seeing the $105-million project coming to life closer to the road. It was the single largest dollar-amount contract in state history at the time it was awarded. ODOT is encouraging Greater Oklahoma City drivers to start using different routes than the I-235/I-44 interchange.

“We always try to start working on the side, so we can start clearing things,” said Terri Angier, ODOT spokeswoman. “The last thing we want to do is disrupt traffic.”
