Business I-20 lanes to be closed this week near Loop 338

Drivers may want to avoid Business Interstate 20 near East Loop 338 during the day this week, as there will be several lane closures as work is done on the roadway.

Odessa District of Texas Department of Transportation Spokesman Gene Powell said the ramp from Business I-20 to southbound East Loop 338 will have daytime closures while workers widen the ramp to allow more room for turning movements, and eastbound Business I-20 will have lane closures while a merge lane for traffic entering from the JBS Parkway overpass is built.

Powell said the work is expected to be completed by the end of the day Friday.
