Sewer main project reveals sinkhole

LAWTON, Okla._Repairs to a sewer main in Lawton may have prevented a sinkhole from caving in.

City crews have been working the last few weeks to fix a burst sewer main on northwest Fort Sill Boulevard near Ozmun Avenue.

The sewer construction department said Tuesday they found a cavity under the road that could have formed into sink hole.

This new discovery set the project completion date back a few days, and they hope to have construction completed by the end of the next week.

In the meantime, the exit ramps to Fort Sill Boulevard from Rogers Lane will remain closed until the project is completed.
