Road work scheduled for Sept. 21-25

Staff Writer

Abilene roadwork projects will bring brief lane closures and detours in some areas beginning next week.
Vinson Road is currently closed at FM 1750 for re-alignment. A detour will be in place for approximately three weeks for drivers needing access to Vinson Road east of FM 1750.
Starting around 6 p.m. Monday, Sept. 21, crews will start work on the final overlay to the US 83/84 (Winters Freeway) frontage roads from near N. 3rd St. to US 277 (S. 14th St.). This work will require closing the outside lanes of the frontage roads in both directions. This first phase of overlay work will only be performed during nighttime hours to limit impact on traffic and businesses along the frontage roads, and should be completed in approximately two weeks.
As always, drivers are encouraged to watch for crew members and large, slow moving equipment in work zones, and to always drive to conditions.
