Drivers can expect the following closures in Newcastle from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday for bridge rehabilitation work:
•The east and westbound I-44 shoulders will be closed near SH-37 West (mm 108), and
•The access road bridge over I-44, just north of SH-37 West, will be closed
While all lanes of I-44 will remain open to traffic, drivers should use caution and plan extra travel time through the work zone.
The Oklahoma Transportation Commission awarded the nearly $335,000 contract for rehabilitation of several bridges in the east-central part of the state to B & B Construction Service, of Clayton, Okla., in November 2018.
