MIDLAND, TX (KWES) - It looks like a road project for Midlanders is about to get underway.

The Texas Department of Transportation is about to start work on an overpass to extend Loop 250 over Fairgrounds Road.

They're already getting supplies and equipment in place, which means they will need to close some lanes to get truckloads of material through.

Once construction actually begins, major traffic disruptions are expected and a 45-mile per hour speed-limit will be in place.

TxDOT expects the overpass to be complete by winter of 2018.
