Rain delays bridge painting project

LAWTON, Okla._Heavy rains have delayed the start of the scheduled bridge and beam painting on the I-44 interchange ramps.

The bridge painting was previously scheduled for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday night. It will now take place Thursday and Friday during the overnight hours instead.

The northbound Northwest 2nd Street on-ramp to eastbound I-44, and the ramp to westbound Cache Road will close intermittently from 8:00 p.m. Thursday until 6:00 a.m. Friday. Both ramps will not be closed at the same time.

Starting at 8:00 p.m. Friday until 6:00 a.m. Saturday, the westbound I-44 off-ramp to southbound Northwest 2nd Street will close.

Drivers should find an alternate route during those times.
