UPTON COUNTY, TX (KWES) - A road project in Upton County is underway.
Crews are adding passing lanes to a two mile stretch of Highway 349.
They will also rehabilitate nearly nine miles of the road.
The project starts at Ranch to Market Road 2401 and goes north toward the Midland County line.
The speed limit is reduced to 45 miles per hour during the project.
A pilot car will guide drivers through the construction zone with temporary traffic lights on each end.
The project is expected to last about nine months.
TXDOT asks that drivers obey all warning signs and any flaggers.
