Wednesday and Thursday are Weather Aware days due to the potential for locally heavy rainfall. Beware of flooded road-ways and never drive around barricades or into water more than six inches deep. High rainfall rates may reduce visibility and also increase the risk of hydroplaning. Turn around, don’t drown! Isolated strong thunderstorms may develop late Wednesday afternoon, but widespread severe weather does not appear to be likely at this time.
ARDMORE, OK--Truckers traveling through Texoma will soon have to stop at three new weigh stations.
ODOT is adding 9 new weigh and inspection stations along key interstates and highways. Three of those in our area. The first, in Love County, on I-35 at the Texas State line.
Another, in Bryan County, south of Durant on US-69/75 at the State line. And one on US-271 in Choctaw County, south of Hugo also at the Texas State line.
ODOT's new "Port of Entry project" should cost about one million dollars. Officials say there is no set date of completion.
