Converting the frontage roads from two-way to one-way was dependent on the new traffic signals at US 180 and Hudson Oaks Dive being operational. The contractor on that job will need to do some more work before the signals are operational. As soon as we know when the new conversion is scheduled we will send out another message so that outreach can proceed accordingly.

HUDSON OAKS – To improve safety and mobility in this growing area of Parker County, the
Interstate 20 east and westbound frontage roads will be converted to one-way from Hudson Oaks
Drive to Farm to Market Road 5 (Mikus Road) in February.

To accommodate the frontage road conversion, new traffic signals at U.S. 180 and Hudson Oaks
Drive are scheduled to be activated the first week of February, and then the conversion of the
frontage roads is planned for the following week. 

The conversion from two-way to one-way operation will occur over a two-day period during non-peak travel times when motorists should
expect delays during this moving operation. Weather permitting:
• Eastbound I-20 frontage road conversion: Wednesday, Feb. 14 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
• Westbound I-20 frontage road conversion: Thursday, Feb. 15 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Afterwards, a $4 million project will begin to construct turnarounds and reconstruct the I-20/FM 5
intersection including permanent traffic signals to provide better traffic flow. This project is
estimated for completion in early 2019. Please see attachment on I-20 frontage road

TxDOT asks motorists to be alert, follow all traffic signs and adjust speed with this new traffic pattern
and during construction. Check for lane closures.

Safety is a top priority at TxDOT, and the foundation for the agency’s planning, building and
maintaining of projects across the state. When driving through a work zone, some simple steps to
take are: slow down, pay attention, avoid distractions such as cell phones, be patient and plan

TxDOT appreciates the patience of motorists, and encourages attention to all warning
signs within the construction work zone while crews work diligently to complete this work
as quickly and as safely as possible.
