West interchange construction to start very soon

STANTON – Highway construction crews have started setting up barricades on the west side of Stanton in preparation to replace the demolished overpass.

The overpass will take Interstate 20 over the local road, in this case Business Interstate 20. This is a different, more modern design than the original layout of the interchange.

Replacing the overpass became necessary after several oversized loads struck and damaged the original structure, making it unsafe for use. By taking the interstate over the local road, the threat of bridge strikes will be greatly reduced.

Construction has already begun on rehabilitating the frontage roads between the overpass location and Highway 137 in Stanton.

The decision was unanimous by the Texas Supreme Court. Texas generally limits mail balloting only to voters who are over 65 years old or have a disability.

In Texas, voters do not have to describe their disability when requesting a mail-in ballot.
