TxDOT: Expect More Traffic Delays Due to Construction as Valley Grows
PHARR – Drivers are dealing with more delays in the McAllen-Pharr area along westbound I-2. The Texas Department of Transportation says expect more in the future.
On Monday morning, drivers experienced a backup along the expressway that was due to a delay in opening the lanes after overnight work.
“The only thing that we ask for people is to have an open mind. And understand that this is part of the growth. It is a growing pain and you've seen the traffic in big towns like Austin, Houston, San Antonio – we're starting to look like them,” said Octavio Saenz, TxDOT spokesman.
Overnight construction work on McColl and Stewart roads is expected through Wednesday, then to resume Sunday night.
Improvements on westbound lanes of I-2 expected to wrap up by Dec. 13.
