A traffic update from TXDOT for Odessa drivers.

The new over pass connecting I-20 and JBS Parkway is weeks away from being complete, but construction connecting JBS through Business 20 has just begun.

Glen Larum, the Public Information Officer for TXDOT, tells NewsWest 9 that the construction that has been ongoing since January of '06 is almost done, but TXDOT just started the 2 year project geared towards connecting I-20, and business 20 along JBS parkway.

The 24 million dollar project will add an overpass on Business 20 at JBS, with a four way interchange, allowing drivers to go north, south, east or west.
