Construction work to cause road closure in Mission

October 4, 2016 GMT

PHARR — Construction work on Expressway 83/I-2 in the Mission area will cause some travel delays on Tuesday.

J.D. Abrams, a TxDOT contractor, will be placing deck panels for the westbound main lane bridge of the expressway as part of the Inspiration Road Project, the agency announced Monday.

A complete closure of Business 83 will occur between the westbound and eastbound frontage of Expressway 83/I-2 on Tuesday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The reconstruction project consists of the expansion of the expressway from a four-lane to a six-lane roadway in the Mission area.

The traveling public is encouraged to seek an alternate route, follow the appropriate signage to their destination, observe all warning signs, and be aware of the construction in the area.
