TxDOT puts Business 80 work on hold

December 19, 2013

Citing unfavorable weather conditions, the Texas Department of Transportation announced it is suspending construction on I-20 Business — Third and Fourth streets — during the winter.

The project will resume in March, when weather is more favorable for the type of work that remains, said TxDOT Area Engineer Jesse Mendoza, P.E.

“The contractor will make sure all travel lanes, driveways and sidewalk ramps are safe and open by the end of the week,” said Mendoza. “Suspending the work for a few months will assure more efficient progress and quality of the pavement surface when temperatures are warmer and the contractor has more hours of daylight.”

The project, which began in March, involves rehabilitating about a mile of I-20 Business from Jones Street to U.S. Highway 87 (Gregg Street). After work resumes, the project is estimated to be completed by summer 2014.
