Lane closures planned as TxDOT repairs US 84 in Abilene


ABILENE, Texas - TxDOT contractors on Monday are scheduled to begin a "months-long project" to repair and rehabilitate a 2.6-mile stretch of US 84 (Business 20) in Abilene.

The project will run -- in both directions -- from near Old Bankhead Highway to near US 83 (Winters Freeway).

US 84, also labeled Business 20, ultimately turns into South 1st Street.

JH Strain & Sons of Tye has been awarded the $2.371 million Texas Department of Public Safety contract.

"Some sections of the roadway will see daytime and nighttime lane closures as the project progresses," TxDOT said in a news release, noting the project will include spot repair, milling, and overlay application.

Estimated completion is mid-September, according to TxDOT.

"TxDOT reminds drivers to always drive to conditions and to be especially watchful in work zones where crew members and large, slow moving vehicles are often present," the news release said.
