TxDOT Pavement Texturing to Begin on IH 20

Staff Writer

ABILENE – Starting Tuesday, January 22, 2019, Texas Department of Transportation crews will begin texturing the pavement on IH 20 between the city limits of Abilene. Motorists can expect intermittent lane closures and reductions in speed when approaching these areas. Crews will start in the eastbound lanes of IH 20 and then move to the westbound lanes.
Texturing the pavement will rejuvenate and improve the riding surface of the roadway and proper surface textures have been known to prevent vehicles from hydroplaning during wet weather.
TxDOT will continue to provide up-to-date lane closures throughout the project. However, citizens are encouraged to visit www.drivetexas.org for current road conditions throughout the state.
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.
