NewsWest 9 Traffic Alert: Traffic Cut to One Lane Along Highway 80 Near JBS

ODESSA - If the construction at the intersection at JBS and Highway 80 in Odessa has been giving you a headache,you probably won't like the next phase on construction either.

Starting Thursday, May 15th,2008,  the traffic on Highway 80 will be reduced to one lane in each direction from JBS to the 8th Street connector as workers move into the next part of the overpass construction to connect JBS to the Interstate.

The speed limit through that area will be 45 miles an hour, and a reminder, traffic fines will double when workers are present, so slow down.

And don't look for changes there anytime soon, the lanes will stay one-lane for about eight months.

The project is expected to be finished in the Spring of 2009.
