OKLAHOMA CITY – A tunnel underneath the Oklahoma State Capitol was shut down on Monday after workers found a soggy mess in the hallway.

The east tunnel apparently flooded over the weekend, leaving water and a musty smell behind.

Crews worked Monday to get the water out of the tunnel and replaced a fan belt to help with the smell.

Authorities say the east tunnel should be reopened next week.

This is said to be a recurring problem but the smell was so bad the walkway had to be closed.
