Roof replacement at Lawton City Hall will begin Monday, February 24, 2020, and will be carried out by Ford Roofing and Sheet Metal.
Work will begin at north side of the building, resulting in the closure of the east bound lane of B Avenue from 8th to 9th streets, to accommodate for construction materials and equipment. The project comes at a cost of approximately $380,000 and is expected to take 60-90 days to complete.
“The roof has suffered hail damage and deterioration from the elements throughout the years, so we are excited to move forward with this project,” said Jack Hanna, Director of Parks & Recreation for the City of Lawton. “The current City Hall roof is more than 20 years old.”
All flat surfaces of the roof will be replaced with TPO (thermoplastic polyolefin) roofing. Lawton City Council approved the project in May 2019. Site survey, architectural work and conceptual design have been worked through with contractors since that time.
Ford Roofing and Sheet Metal representatives said, weather pending, work should begin at approximately 8 a.m. or with sunrise each work day until the job is completed. Drivers traveling on Southwest B Avenue should adhere to all traffic advisories or signage placed as work is carried out on this project.
