TULSA - The Broken Arrow Expressway should become a little easier for drivers to navigate Friday.
Crews are shifting the eastbound lanes between Yale and Sheridan where bridge repairs continue.
A second lane will now be open for motorists.
"We're trying to funnel 80,000 to 90,000 vehicles a day through a narrowed work zone," said Kenna Mitchell, ODOT spokeswoman. "So it does take some time to get through there, but we hope that with this, with opening the second lane in the corridor as we finish work over that last lane, that that's going to (relieve) just a little bit of the constraints of getting traffic through there."
This should benefit fair-goers -- much of that traffic will need to use the Yale Exit.
