New I-40 WB Opening Sunday, Exits Changing (Feb 17, 2012)

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahoma Department of Transportation officials say dramatic changes are in store for motorists traveling in downtown Oklahoma City as westbound lanes of the new Interstate 40 Crosstown highway open this weekend.

Officials say beginning Sunday, westbound I-40 will be narrowed to one lane between Interstate 35 and I-44 from 6 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., and all on-ramps to westbound I-40 will be closed permanently as traffic is shifted to the new lanes.

Once vehicles are shifted to the new alignment, the Robinson Avenue and Hudson Avenue on-ramps will no longer be accessible, and use of Shields Boulevard is encouraged.

Officials say drivers should use Interstate 235, Sheridan Avenue and other local streets to reach downtown Oklahoma City.

Eastbound lanes of the highway opened in January.
