COMANCHE COUNTY, Okla._The final road in western Comanche County has reopened after the May flooding.

Flood waters caused five roads to be shut down because of washouts and requiring new tinhorns. The county worked to get those roads back open as quickly as possible, but Cross Road took a bit longer than the others to repair.

Cross Road, just west of the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge, remained closed due to damage to Trotter’s Bridge. Bridge repairs took 130 yards of concrete, 1,090 tons of gravel and more than 150 tons of rip rap, the large rock seen along waterways. The repairs cost more than $50,000.

The county is working with the Federal Highway Administration, ODOT and FEMA in an attempt to recoup some of the expense of road and bridge repairs.
