Lanes reopened on US 169 northbound at 56th Street North after emergency repairs

All lanes on US 169 at 56th Street North are reopened, Oklahoma Department of Transportation said Thursday evening.

The right lane of US 169 northbound was closed due to emergency deck repairs to the Bird Creek bridge just after 3 p.m.

The closed lane caused traffic to back well past the 169/244 interchange.

ODOT expected the repairs to take several hours. The lanes were reopened just after 5:30 p.m.

Drivers can expect delays as traffic adjusts.
