Brief I-20 Closure

Staff Writer

TxDOT has closed part of I-20 this evening in the vicinity of Highway 158 (Garden City Highway)
The closure is being done to facilitate repair to damaged power line that needs replacing in Midland.
A rolling barricade in each direction began after 6 p.m. The barricade will gradually slow until all traffic is stopped. The rolling barricade will use message boards, law enforcement and truck-mounted crash attenuators in the interest of safety. Oncor Electric will then install a new line across the interstate.
If at all possible, please do not use I-20 this evening between 6 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. Please find alternate routes. If you must use I-20, please expect delays and follow all warning signs and all directions from law enforcement.
