TULSA -- A resurfacing project set for nearly six miles of Highway 75 in Tulsa slated to start Monday after it was pushed back last week due to the rain.

The $4.7 million project will resurface north and southbound US-75 lanes from near the western I-244 junction to near the Creek Turnpike/State Highway 364 junction, Oklahoma Department of Transportation officials said.

The project is expected to have an impact on traffic until early summer.

Various lane and ramp closures will be in place during peak travel times, officials said. For Monday, ODOT officials said one lane of Highway 75 will be closed in the northbound lanes from 71st Street South to I-44 at 6 a.m. Southbound lanes will be open. Lane closures could vary from day to day, officials said.

Officials urge drivers to plan for major delays in the area, especially during morning and evening commutes.
