The Oklahoma Department of Transportation has announced highways in the area will be closed for various work.

According to a press release from ODOT, the first closure will take place in both east and westbound lanes of State Highway 55 between US Highway 183 and Elm Street in Rocky, in Washita County from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Wednesday for repairs to the railroad crossing. ODOT says drivers will need to locate an alternate route or plan extra travel time, and that traffic will be detoured on local streets during the closure by flaggers.

ODOT says that they will also be closing State Highway 6 in Elk City at the current diverging diamond interchange bridge project over Interstate 40 on Monday, September 14, and Tuesday, September 15 from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m.
