Lawton_West 112th Street in western Comanche County is one step closer to being fixed.
Monday, the Comanche County Commissioners approved the engineering plans. Funding for the $950,000 project was made available by the Oklahoma Department of Transportation last year.
Since part of the road is also in the Lawton city limits, the city council must approve the plans too. If that happens, as expected, construction could start as soon as next Monday.
Road crews will have to close the road through Lawton's portion of 112th Street, from Lee Boulevard north, about a mile, to the railroad tracks for about six months.
When that is completed, they'll start on the second stage, which will be on Lee Boulevard, east from 112th, for about half a mile.
