The Oklahoma Department of Transportation will soon begin work near the I-40 interchange at U.S. 64 in Sallisaw.
Construction will begin in January, according to Jamie Malmstrom, construction engineer for ODOT’s Division 1. The $42 million project stretches from 1.1 miles east of U.S. 59 and extends east on U.S. 64 at the I-40 interchange. It includes replacement of the I-40 bridges over the Kansas City Southern railroad and two creeks near the interchange. The project, overseen by Sherwood Construction, will address a total of four structurally deficient bridges.
“Crossovers will be built and traffic will be switched into a head to head configuration,” Malmstrom said. “The project is anticipated to last 700 days for completion. We encourage drivers to anticipate some delays and to please pay attention for lane changes and watch out for workers.”
