WINKLER COUNTY - Winkler County takes the first step toward bringing five new passing lanes to State Highway 302 this week.

A ground breaking ceremony for the new lanes is scheduled on Monday, just east of the Kermit City limits, near the intersection of County Road 313.

An Odessa company is in charge of the more than two-million-dollar project expected to make the two lane highway safer.

Federal stimulus money from the recovery and reinvestment act is funding the project.
