FLOODING: Highway Conditions 6-12-19 as of 5:30 p.m.

EDITOR'S NOTE: With historic rainfall since winter 2018 through the spring, many roads are closed, including some construction projects due to rivers and creeks rising too high for some work to continue.

  • Be alert to any water over driving lanes;
  • Don't drive around barricades;
  • Don't pull over to take photos or sightsee as many river and creek banks are unstable.

As water levels subside, ODOT and the Oklahoma Turnpike Authority will assess existing pavement conditions for needed repairs and also construction timetables for further changes and updates. Drivers are encouraged to be prepared and partner with these agencies as they address these needs and possible delays. ODOT wants drivers to be prepared for more inconvenience and travel impacts this summer for repairs after this spring's flooding.
