BROKEN ARROW, Okla. - Rush hour drivers now face the start of a major road project in Broken Arrow.
The city is widening 9th Street or Lynn Lane from State Highway 51 to Albany Street.
When the job's done, Lynn Lane will have five lanes, instead of the current three.
City officials say this stretch of 9th Street is one of the busiest in Broken Arrow, with more than 18,000 cars driving on the roadway everyday.
The project is expected to be complete by October.
Until then, only one lane will be open in each direction.
The city says drivers should expect delays. Broken Arrow police say they will enforce the posted 25 miles per hour speed limit to protect both workers and drivers in the area.
Officials are asking drivers to take alternate routes if possible.
