Loop 250 Overpass at Interstate 20:
An oversized load caused damage to the overpass on Loop 250 at Interstate 20 on Friday, December 5. Southbound and northbound traffic is down to one lane across the bridge.
Lamesa Road Overpass:
TxDOT has installed temporary signals to allow traffic to use the single lane in alternating fashion. It is extremely important that people obey the signal light to prevent crashes. Half of the bridge will be barricaded to prevent use of the section of the overpass that was severely damaged by an oversized load on Tuesday, Oct. 28.
A Street at Ohio Avenue:
City crews have upgraded the crosswalk warning devices at the school crossing on A Street at Midland High School. Drivers should note that the new, enhanced warning lights will flash whenever pedestrians are in or near the crosswalk. Under Texas state law, drivers are required to yield to pedestrians in the crosswalk, and new yield lines have now been marked on the roadway to show where drivers should stop so that people using the crosswalk are clearly visible to traffic in all lanes.
Utility Extension Program:
The City’s Contractor is working at various locations:
• Mogford Street between Michigan Street and Louisiana Street: During the project, Mogford Street, Michigan Street, and Louisiana Street may be temporarily closed or reduced to a single lane of traffic.
