MIDLAND/ODESSA - TXDOT crews are working on another project to stop drivers from breaking the law.

New barriers are set to go up next week on Highway 191, west of FM 1788.

Digby Construction plans to build a post and cable fence lining on Highway 191.

The barrier was given the green light by TXDOT due to the huge increase of drivers illegally crossing the medians between the Highway 191 main lanes and the frontage roads.

The fencing will go up on the north frontage road from Loop 338 to FM 1788.

The south frontage road will have the barrier going from Billy Hext Road and FM 1788.

The post and cable fence will also be installed on the highway 349 reliever route.

The barrier project is scheduled to be completed by August 31st.
