Road work being funded through the City of Lawton’s Capital Improvements Programs is continuing, with city officials joking that residents soon will be complaining about disruptions caused by too many repairs.


City officials are looking at two projects that are expected to begin in 2021: a pedestrian bridge over Interstate 44 and expansion of the last two-lane segment of Gore Boulevard.


The East Gore Boulevard bridge project will build a pedestrian bridge over the interstate below will be a dual span bridge built parallel to the existing vehicular bridge. The project is a joint one with the Oklahoma Department of Transportation (ODOT), which is matching $700,000 to the City of Lawton’s $600,000. CEC, Oklahoma City, is working on designs for that bridge after city officials agreed to the less expensive option of a dual span bridge for $1.2 million (rather than a separate bridge, built south of the existing vehicular bridge, estimated at $1.94 million). City officials expect to let the project for bids in June 2021 and award a contract in July 2021.
