Heat Once Again Buckles Stretch Of Highway 75 Near Ramona

Posted: Updated:

A road hazard in Washington County is causing challenges for drivers on northbound Highway 75 near Ramona. The pavement in the outside lane literally crumbled into chunks.

When Osage SkyNews 6 HD flew over the scene Tuesday morning, we spotted ODOT workers taking a look at the problem. They'd blocked off the lane to traffic so workers could start repairs.

It looked like a patch of highway in the inside lane was recently repaired in the same spot.

Oklahoma Department of Transportation tells News On 6 Monday's extreme heat played a role in causing the concrete to crumble.

That has been the case in that same area in the past.
