FM 1788 Lane Closures Set for Monday

MIDLAND COUNTY, Texas (Local 2/Fox 24) - There will be some lane closures on FM 1788.

Officials with the Texas Department of Transportation say the outside lanes on FM 1788 between Highway 191 and Business 20 will be closed starting Monday.

The closures will reportedly last until August as crews build shoulders to widen the road.

The project will add a continuous left turn lane improving safety, and it will rehabilitate and rebuild the stretch which has deteriorated due to heavy oil field traffic, according to a release.

A reduced speed limit will also be in effect during the project and a width restrict of 11 feet has been put in place for a duration of the project.

 

The entire project is expected to be complete in early 2018.
