SH-53 will be closed just east of US-81 near Comanche starting 7 a.m. Monday through mid-February for a bridge reconstruction project. Through traffic will be detoured to US-81 to SH-7 and then to SH-76. Drivers should plan additional travel time when going through the area.
The project was awarded to C3 Construction of Ada for $1.6 million. The SH-53 closure is through mid-February and the entire project is scheduled to be completed in Spring 2020.
