Bridge will be down to one lane for several months

PECOS COUNTY A project to rebuild a U.S. Highway 67 bridge on the Pecos River is scheduled to make a major traffic change Wednesday as the bridge is reduced to one lane for the next several months.
Reece Albert Inc. of San Angelo and Midland won the project with a low bid of $2,756,477.87, according to a Texas Department of Transportation news release.
Temporary red-yellow-green traffic signals will be in use to direct traffic across the bridge. Other safety measures include a width restriction of 10 feet and a speed limit of 45 miles per hour in the work zone.
The one-lane configuration is needed in order for demolition and construction of the old bridge, according to the release. The lane that will remain in use is the additional lane recently added to the structure.
If possible, alternate routes are suggested. The bridge straddles the Pecos River and connects Pecos County with Crockett County.
The project is scheduled to be completed in late fall.
