Citing unfavorable weather conditions, the Texas Department of Transportation announced it is suspending construction on I-20 Business â€” Third and Fourth streets â€” 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.
â€śThe contractor will make sure all travel lanes, driveways and sidewalk ramps are safe and open by the end of the week,â€ť said Mendoza. â€śSuspending 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.â€ť
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.
