The Texas Department of Transportation will begin moving westbound traffic on a portion of I-14 over the weekend and next week, transitioning it to new pavement in that stretch of highway being modified in Harker Heights.
Preparation for the traffic shift will begin with closure of various westbound lanes from 7 p.m. through 6 a.m. Sunday through Friday, March 10 through March 15.
The overnight temporary closures will allow the contractor to move traffic barriers and move westbound traffic onto the newly completed pavement within the project area.
The ongoing I-14 expansion project, which began in the Spring of 2018, will provide additional roadway capacity by adding an inside travel lane in both the east and westbound directions from one-mile west of FM 2410 to FM 3423 also known as Indian Trail.
The project is scheduled for completion in the summer of 2019, weather permitting.
TXDOT urges motorists to observe all warning signs, work zone speed reductions and to exercise caution when passing near construction workers and equipment in the project area.
