A major project starts Monday on the Inner Dispersal Loop.

A $26 million resurfacing project gets underway on U.S. 75. That’s the east leg of the IDL. Southbound lanes will be closed starting Monday, with detours to other segments.

The east leg is the last of the IDL's four sections to get a full overhaul. The Oklahoma Department of Transportation started IDL projects in 2009, using American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funds.

ODOT warns drivers to expect significant delays, especially during rush hours. 

Work being done includes pavement reconstruction, new lighting, and repairs to three bridges. The project should run into early 2023. The planned project area covers more than 1.5 miles of highway.
