Interstate travel through Goldsby at mile marker 104 will pose challenges for motorists beginning February 3 through October of 2020.
That’s the word from ODOT who announced this week northbound I-35 lanes will be shifted and narrowed at 104 as part of the I-35/SH 74 interchange reconstruction.
North and southbound I-35 will be narrowed to one lane in each direction at mile marker 104 on week nights in February for bridge rehabilitation.
The northbound I-35 on-ramp from SH 74 and Main Street in Goldsby (mm 104) is set to close in spring 2020 for up to two months.
The northbound I-35 off-ramp to SH 74 and Main street will remain open throughout the project. SH 74 and Main Street will be intermittently narrowed to one lane with a temporary traffic signal between Airport Road and Center Road from March through the remainder of the project, ODOT officials confirm.
I-35 on and off-ramps will be narrowed with flaggers at times. No I-35 ramp closures are planned to occur until the I-35 ramps to and from Ladd Road, which are currently closed as part of an ongoing project, are opened.
The $4.8 million project to resurface I-35 and SH 74, to reconstruct the I-35/SH 74 interchange, which will include a roundabout at the end of the ramp, and to rehabilitate the SH 74 bridge over I-35 was awarded to Allen Contracting of Oklahoma City in October 2019. Completion date, weather permitting, is late 2020, officials said.
Drivers are encouraged to plan additional time in the area.
