The left lanes of east and westbound I-40 are closed until further notice at the US-64 junction in Sallisaw as part of an interchange improvement project. Delays can be expected, and drivers should plan ahead for extra travel time in this corridor.
The $42 million project began Jan. 21 and will replace or rehabilitate ten bridges on I-40 from the US-64 interchange to just east of the US-59 junction (between MM308-311). Pavement will also be replaced in this nearly three-mile area, and ramps will be widened to improve merging points at the I-40/US-64 interchange.
Drivers will need to use caution and expect slower traffic and delays, especially during peak travel times.
The overall project is expected to complete in early 2021, weather permitting.
