The City of Lawton is working on some busted water pipes this afternoon on the 6500 block of West Gore Boulevard. If you live or have a business along West Gore from Northwest 67th Street to Northwest Compass you'll be without water for the next 6-8 hours while repairs are being made. Luckily the snow has stopped so the weather should be fairly cooperative so workers can restore water service to that area.

Work will get underway at 10:00-am this morning (02-04-22). Be advised that the outside westbound lane of West Gore Boulevard will be closed throughout the repairs. The break wasn't caused by the recent weather and freezing temperatures according to the City of Lawton. If you live somewhere in the affected area you can click here for updates. Hopefully, they'll be able to get it repaired quickly and Mother Nature cooperates.

A BIG THANK YOU to all of our City of Lawton workers along with the Lawton Police Department, Fire Department, Sherriff's Office, and first responders for everything they've done over the past couple of days. They've been working hard and have braved the frozen tundra to improve conditions and keep us all safe during the Winter storm. We can't thank you enough for all you've done and continue to do for us.

It's starting to warm up slowly and soon all the snow and ice should be gone and temperatures will return to a more normal and comfortable level outdoors. It's been a crazy couple of days that's for sure. Until it does be careful if you get out in it and be mindful of the road conditions. Stay safe and stay warm out there.
