From repaving loop 322, to several other projects, there is quite a bit of construction going on in Abilene right now. Here’s a list of projects that Texas Department of Transportation have announced for the week of March 23-27.
- East Hwy 80 from Newman Road to I-20: (Starting Monday, March 23rd,2015) Construction to include application of overlay and underseal, planing and other roadway enhancements.The first part of this project will require closing the westbound I-20 exit ramp onto BI-20 during daytime hours for approximately three days. The ramp will be re-opened at night. Drivers can expect additional daytime lane closures throughout the duration of the project, which is expected to be completed in the fall of 2015 barring weather or other unexpected delays.
- BI-20 (East Hwy 80): The westbound exit ramp from I-20 to BI-20R (East Hwy 80) will be closed during daytime hours for approximately three days for repairs. The ramp will be re-opened at night. Following completion of the pavement repairs on the exit ramp, TxDOT will continue with pavement repairs in the driving lanes of BI-20R with various daytime lane closures. This temporary ramp closure is part of a pavement repair project that is expected to be completed in the fall of 2015.
- LP 322 one-way frontage road (Lytle Creek to Maple): Southbound FM 1750 entrance ramp is closed due to pavement issues resulting from inclement weather and will remain closed until the weather clears to allow for the contractor to properly repair.
