ODOT crews fix ‘Lawtou’ highway sign

LAWTON, Okla. – Crews were busy fixing a mistake on a highway sign early Friday morning.

Some drivers along southbound I-35 near Wilshire Blvd. in Oklahoma City may have noticed something a little different on their drive to work.

Instead of telling drivers to take westbound I-44 to get to Lawton, the sign read ‘Lawtou.’

Crews immediately responded to the interstate and were able to quickly remedy the mistake.

ODOT says that since the spelling mistake was made by the contractor who manufactured and installed the sign, it was fixed by the contractor at no expense to the taxpayers.
