Interstate 40 and State Highway 100 are reopened, according to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol (OHP).

The roads were closed as a safety precaution because of two barges that were loose in the navigation channel.  

OHP, the Oklahoma Department of Transportation and other agencies kept a close eye on the situation all day Thursday, May 23.

Around 5 p.m. a decision was made to reopen the roadway, according to OHP.
