I-20 travelers in Midland will be using new entrance and exit ramps at CR 1250 next week. New ramps will also open near LP 250 and FM 1788. The new ramps will open the morning of November 29. The old ramps will be closed that afternoon. These improvements are part of the CR 1250 overpass project that will eliminate the risk of bridge strikes on I-20, a news release said.
The project design provides additional distance between the exit ramps and the cross-road intersections to improve traffic flow and increase safety. Watch for roadside guide signs and message boards providing guidance to the new ramps.
Eastbound traffic will be exiting earlier when connecting to LP 250 and Antelope trail. Likewise westbound traffic will be exiting earlier when connecting to FM 1788. The new ramp layout will reduce weaving congestion on I-20.
This CR 1250 overpass along with the Midkiff and Cotton Flat overpasses will provide travelers and trucking interests a safer and more efficient I-20 corridor. Midkiff and Cotton Flat Roads will open to north-south traffic under the new bridges by spring of 2024.
