BURKBURNETT, Texas (KAUZ) - All northbound lanes of I-44 were briefly closed beginning at 10:30 a.m. on Friday.

The road closure was a result of the Oklahoma Department of Transportation hanging a bridge beam north of the Red River. The operation was expected to last about 15-20 minutes, with Oklahoma Troopers conducting a rolling roadblock to slow motorists to a stop.

Traffic was expected to back up into Texas.
