MIDLAND, TX (KWES) - Planning for an extension to Loop 250 is underway.

The Texas Department of Transportation unveiled plans to create overpasses to County Road 1150 and County Road 60.

The idea is to have the two overpasses because the roads are close together.

Officials took suggestions from residents on the plan making sure no issues would come up during construction.

"There may be things that we're not aware of. Maybe somebody is developing a new subdivision, maybe there's a new employer going to go in and build a plant. Those kind of things help us identify future traffic patterns so we can incorporate things into our planning," said Gene Powell with the Texas Department of Transportation.

TxDOT says possible construction is two years away.

The overpasses would be finished by late 2021.
