Updated Load Ratings, COL Bridges
The biannual review of municipal bridges, conducted by the Oklahoma Department of Transportation in concert with the City of Lawton to meet federal requirements, has resulted in updated load ratings at several locations:
- The load ratings on two Cache Road bridges between NW 44th and NW 40th have each changed to 24 tons.
- The load rating on a SW Coombs bridge between SW 38th and Sheridan Road has changed to 23 tons.
- The load rating on two SW 11th Street bridges just south of I-44 have each changed to 33 tons.
Signage reflecting the new load ratings have been posted at each location. See details on the load ratings, as well as maps, here: lawtonok.gov/sites/default/files/publications/2020-04/Load%20Postings_final.pdf.
Needed repairs are soon to be carried out at the reference bridge on SW 11th. These repairs will result in one-way traffic for approximately three months. The contracted work is slated to begin the third week of May. Please be cognizant of travel delays, pay attention to signage in the area and watch for workers.
