DURANT, Okla. (KTEN) — A portion of Washington Avenue in Durant was closed on Sunday.

The section of the street that runs under U.S. 69/75 is off-limits while the Oklahoma Department of Transportation makes emergency repairs to the overpass.

The structure was damaged by a vehicle that was a little too tall for the posted 14-foot 6-inch clearance last week.

The City of Durant is urged motorists to be mindful of workers in the area and to follow all traffic signs.
