ODESSA - More progress for the Parks Legado project in Odessa.

Ector County Commissioners agreed to pick up the tab for the construction of a road that would connect Billy Hext to Highway 191 on the east side of the city.

Ector County is the third taxing entity to help with the development, which is the brain-child of Colin Sewell, that would bring a shopping and residential center.

Parks Legado is expected to bring millions of dollars and more than 100 jobs to Odessa.

The other taxing entities that have signed on are the City of Odessa and Odessa College.
