LONGVIEW, Texas (KLTV) - The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) reports construction will begin Tuesday to construct medians on U.S. Highway 80, just east of Eastman Road.

To reduce conflicting traffic movements in the existing median, the future traffic pattern will be directed east out of the school exit and then allowed to make a U-turn to then travel westbound.
