    Lawton road reopens following flooding wash out

    A road that washed out in flooding overnight is back open to local residents. After getting around 4 inches of rain, a section of SW Bishop Road between 44th Street and 52nd Street became impassable. It took four trucks of gravel, loaders and several city workers to get this road fixed so residents could get out and get to work. This is the same spot where crews were working on a sewage project.
