BIG SPRING, TX (KWES) - Big Spring is close to opening the southern portion of their truck reliever route and held a grand opening ceremony Wednesday.
The William B. Crooker Memorial Highway has been under construction for two years and will open to traffic in the next few weeks, several months ahead of schedule.
TXDOT says it was built to keep major traffic from going through the middle of downtown Big Spring.
Construction on the northern portion of the relief route has not started at this time.
