Highway south of Hodgen has a wash out

Part of Highway 59 on the big curve south of Hodgen washed out Friday afternoon, closing down traffic for a brief period.

The Oklahoma Department of Transportation made a temporary fix of the road and traffic resumed within a couple of hours.

The area has received over five inches of rain in May with over three inches in the last week. That area of the road has had problems previously as the outside section washed away several years ago.
