Eastbound Interstate 40 lanes will be reduced east of Yukon in eastern Canadian County Thursday night for work connected to the new turnpike.

Eastbound I-40 will be one lane between State Highway 4/Mustang Road and Morgan Road from 7 p.m. Thursday to 6 a.m. Friday, the Oklahoma Department of Transportation reported.

Ongoing construction is connected to the new John Kilpatrick Turnpike extension, ODOT reports.
