Staff Report

The Texas Department of Transportation says their road widening projects could save a lot of lives.

By making highways wider and adding shoulders to thousands of miles of rural two-lane highways, it cuts down on wrecks.

The Texas Transportation Institute estimates these changes could save more than 800 lives and prevent tons of injuries in the next 20 years.
