PARKER COUNTY – One year into the project, substantial progress has been made on the construction of new I-20 east and westbound continuous frontage roads from E. Bankhead Drive to Hudson Oaks Drive. The frontage roads are part of a project to construct a new Center Point Road bridge over Interstate 20 including Texas turnaround/U-turn bridges.

Concrete bridge decks over Willow Creek were completed earlier this summer and crews will install new concrete paving on the frontage roads before the end of 2018. The new frontage roads will serve as the detour route for I-20 mainlane closures that will be needed to build the new Center Point Road bridge starting in late 2018 or early 2019.

The $30 million project is a partnership between TxDOT, Parker County and the cities of Hudson Oaks and Weatherford to improve safety and mobility along I-20 and is estimated for completion in Fall 2019. The three-mile project was awarded to the Ed Bell Construction Company and construction began last October.

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 ahead.  You can see all Texas road conditions by visiting: www.drivetexas.org.

TxDOT, Parker County, Hudson Oaks and Weatherford, 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.
