DO NOT CROSS I-44 ON FOOT! Fence removed between Interstate Drive and I-44 for improvements

LAWTON, OK (KSWO)- Construction has begun in an area off I-44 where several pedestrians have been hit.

As you may recall, there used to be a fence that sat right here between Interstate Drive and I-44 in Lawton. It kept people from walking across the highway.
Now, that fence is gone.

ODOT says they tore it down on Monday to make way for a new fence but it will take a couple of months.

In the meantime, we want to remind you that walking across the highway is not only dangerous -- it's also illegal.
