Engineering phase approved on 112th St. project

Posted: Updated:

Lawton_The bumpy ride along 112th Street in western Comanche County is one step closer to being fixed.

The Comanche County Commissioners approved a contract to start the engineering on the first phase of the $950,000 project.

The county is working with the City of Lawton and the Oklahoma Department of Transportation to get the road fixed.

The first phase will tackle the Lawton's portion of the street, which starts at the railroad tracks and ends at Lee Boulevard.

Commissioner Don Hawthorne says they had hoped to start construction during the winter but it's taken longer because all three entities have to agree on everything.

They hope to have the agreement finalized within the next two weeks.
