ODESSA, TX (KWES) - Drivers in Odessa may have noticed a traffic pattern change at one intersection on Monday.

Running through Thanksgiving, traffic will be down to one lane at the intersection of Interstate 20 and East Loop 338 between now and the Thanksgiving holiday.

Lower speed limits will be in effect while the Texas Department of Transportation starts re-constructing the frontage roads on either side of the interstate.

Overall, the project is aimed at changing the ramp locations, adding deceleration lanes for I-20 and turning lanes for the frontage roads.

TxDOT strongly advises daily travelers to try and find a different route while construction is underway.
