Man hole replaced at Taft and Speedway

WICHITA FALLS, TX (KAUZ) - Many in Wichita Falls have been noticing a detour at the intersection of Taft and Speedway.
City officials are telling us that the intersection has been closed to replace a deteriorating man hole.
Nicki Lowery, the Rehabilitation Superintendent, said it was in bad condition and the city felt it needed to be addressed immediately.
"The concrete was already breaking around the outside edges on the surface," Lowery said. "So we went in and excavated, removed the man hole and replaced it with a new man hole."
Lowery said they have finished construction and handed the project off to the street department.
Traffic should now be back to normal in the area.
