The Oklahoma Dept. of Transportation plans to open a new exit and entrance on the I-40 Crosstown through Oklahoma City in time for Friday’s rush hour. The new connection provides improved access to downtown Oklahoma City.
The new exit will open access to Virginia Ave. and Klein Ave. for eastbound traffic on I-40, eventually extending to the new Oklahoma City Blvd.
The project also gives drivers on westbound I-40 access to an on-ramp from the Oklahoma City Blvd. at Klein Ave. and Virginia Ave.
An ODOT news release says the project is open to traffic three months ahead of schedule.
