The 17th Street on ramp to eastbound I-244 has been closed due to the I-244/U.S. 75 Arkansas River bridge redecking project. As a result, these temporary highway signs have been posted for northbound traffic on Southwest Boulevard wanting to access the highways. While different directions are displayed on the signs, the common direction for this detour is "North." The detour for U.S. 75, U.S. 64 and S.H. 51 involves traveling Southwest Boulevard north to 12th Street and then turning east to access the Broken Arrow Expressway just west of Houston Avenue. The I-244 detour involves traveling north on Southwest Boulevard, Lawton Street and Heavy Trafficway to the 1st Street entrance ramp. The detour will be in place until the bridge project is completed later this year. Photograph taken July 15, 1987.
