Sinkhole detours traffic for second time

Posted: Updated:

LAWTON, Okla._The weekend's wintry mix and cold temperatures are being blamed for a sinkhole in southwest Lawton that popped up Monday afternoon.

Public Works officials working on the sinkhole said the cold weather and poor driving conditions caused the patch they put in on Sunday to sink down on Monday. A water main broke at 11th Street and B Avenue which caused a detour on Sunday much like the work that was done Monday as well.

After over an hour of work, 11th Street has since then been reopened for traffic.
