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 August 11-15.
- Frontage road work on I-20 between mile marker 287-290: Construction on frontage roads continue on east and west bond lanes with various and intermittent ramp closures. Project expected to last through October.
- US 83 frontage roads from Canyon Rock Road to FM 707: Frontage road work continues. Inside lanes are closed and traffic is limited to one way on each side of the freeway. The southbound exit to Clack Street is closed as crews reconstruct the ramp. When the reconstructed Clack exit opens, the exit from Loop 322/Treadaway to Clack will be closed. Traffic that would normally access destinations from that direction will need to use Antilley Road, Memorial Drive and Covenant Drive. Drive to reach locations along Clack. This change is expected to happen in late March or early April.
