Dignitaries to attend relief route ceremony

April 21, 2014

Dignitaries will descend on Big Spring Friday as the The Texas Department of Transportation, city of Big Spring and the 
Big Spring Area Chamber of Commerce will host a groundbreaking ceremony for the US 87 Truck Relief Route.

“This is an extremely important moment,” said Bill Crooker, a former long-time county commissioner and member of the Ports-to-Plains committee. “We have been members of the Ports-to-Plains since 1999, and we feel that is a valuable asset to be on the Ports-to-Plains route. This bypass will help relieve truck traffic in downtown Big Spring.”

The groundbreaking is set for 10:30 a.m. Friday, at Hangar 25 Air Museum, 1911 Apron Drive. A number of state and local officials area expected to celebrate the ground breaking.
