(Nexstar)- A road project is scheduled to begin this month that will feature major improvements at two key intersections: the creation of a left turn lane and signal head improvements on South Loop 338 at Highway 385 in Odessa; and the installation of traffic signals on the Interstate 20 service roads at East Loop 250 in Midland.
In Odessa, work will begin with the addition of a left turn lane and left turn signal on South Loop 338 at Highway 385 south of Odessa.
This will require restriping the road and swapping out traffic signal heads. Lane closures will be needed for a short time.
In Midland, the installation of traffic signals at East Loop 250 and the Interstate 20 service roads will be the largest change made in the project.
Lane closures will be needed at times and a four-way stop will remain in place on both service roads at East Loop 250 while the area is under construction.
A width restriction of 11 feet will be put in place in the work zone.
The overall project will also make improvements at five other locations across the 12-county Odessa District. Signal cabinet upgrades and vehicle detection systems will be added at the following locations with minimal disruptions to traffic:
- U.S. Highway 385 and North Avenue G in Andrews.
- U.S. Highway 285 and Nelson Street in Fort Stockton.
- U.S. Highway 285 and FM 1053 in Fort Stockton.
- Highway 18 and Highway 302 in Kermit.
- FM 761 and Washington Street in Pecos.
All segments of the project are scheduled to be completed this summer.
