Cushing refinery tower will be demolished Sunday

(Cushing-AP) -- A section of State Highway 33 near Cushing will be closed Sunday while a refinery tower is demolished.

The Environmental Protection Agency and Army Corps of Engineers will bring down the tallest tower at the abandoned Hudson Refinery.

The controlled explosion is planned for 10 o'clock Sunday morning. The highway will be closed for about 30 minutes.

The demolition of the tower is part of the cleanup of the E-P-A Superfund site.

Another tower will be demolished in March.
