Parts of I-20 westbound frontage road to close at FM 314

VAN ZANDT COUNTY, TX (KLTV) -

Released by The Texas Department of Transportation:

TYLER – A construction project to relocate the I-20 Westbound Frontage Road at the FM 314 Exit in Van Zandt County is set to get underway this week.

According to the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), traffic control barricades will be put in place on Wednesday, October 12, to kick off construction. The project is being conducted in two phases. Phase I starts on Wednesday with a portion of the I-20 Westbound Frontage Road closing for several months from approximately 500 feet east of the current exit ramp to about 3,250 feet eastward. The existing ramp and frontage road from the ramp west to FM 314 will remain open during this phase of work. Phase I consists of reconstructing the frontage road and building the new exit ramp 1.13 miles east of FM 314.

Phase II work will consist of constructing a detour from the FM 314 intersection eastward for about 2,000 feet, and completing the frontage road west to the intersection. The contractor for the $4.7 million project is Longview Bridge and Road. Completion is expected in summer 2017.

TxDOT reminds drivers to use caution when traveling through this and all work zones, obeying traffic control devices and watching for workers. Remember traffic fines double when workers are present.
