Midland City Council Approves Sending Funds For Fairgrounds Road Project

MIDLAND, TX (KWES) -

Officials are one step closer to expanding one major road in Midland.

The city council approved sending the Texas Department of Transportation $1.4 million in funding to make improvements to Fairgrounds Road.

Crews will widen the road from two to five lanes from Pecan Avenue to Loop 250.

Officials say the changes are needed to help alleviate the traffic congestion and increasing traffic volumes.

There's no word on when construction will start.
