TRAFFIC ALERT: Traffic Changes on the Way to West Loop 250, Intestate 20 Intersection

MIDLAND, TX (KWES) -

Some traffic changes are on the way next week to the intersection of West Loop 250 and Interstate 20.

Texas Department of Transportation officials tell NewsWest 9, frontage roads at the northeast, southeast and southwest approaches to Loop 250 will be converted to one lane, which means traffic will only be moving in one direction and that condition will remain for several months.

This project also includes minor changes to eastbound Interstate 20. Traffic will shift to temporary on and off ramps on Thursday. Westbound traffic will shift to temporary ramps on Friday.

The project will adjust ramp locations, build deceleration lanes on Interstate 20 and add turn lanes on frontage roads.

Drivers are strongly encouraged to find alternate routes if possible.

The speed limit in the project area will be reduced to 55 miles per hour.
