Midkiff and Cotton Flat Roads will see significant detours along Interstate 20. Cotton Flat Road bridge demolition will begin December 16, 2022.
In preparation for this demolition the Cotton Flat Rd bridge crossing I-20 has been closed. During nighttime demolition, the main lanes will be closed with traffic diverted to the frontage roads, then shifting traffic back to the main lanes with night time service road closure to complete the demolition.
The Midkiff bridge will soon follow with closure and demolition early in 2023.
While work is being done, its recommend that drivers coming from East take Rankin Hwy to CR 140 to access anywhere south of I-20. For drivers traveling west, its recommended that they use CR 1232 to CR 140.
Midland County will begin reconstruction of SCR1270 Phase 2 beginning on January 5, 2023 with expected completion in January of 2024. Limits of construction begin at CR160 and move south 2 miles to the end of the road.
Construction will be done in two “phases”, with the first phase being CR170 to the end of the roadway, and the second phase being CR160 to CR170.
During phase 1, road south of CR170 to end of road will be local traffic only and will be 1-lane 2-way traffic.
During phase 2, traffic will be detoured east along WCR160 to SCR1265 to WCR170. Road will be closed from WCR160 to WCR170 during construction. SCR 1270 south of WCR 170 will re-open after phase 1.
The project consists of complete removal and reconstruction of the driving surface for the limits of construction. Including introduction of drainage ditches on either side of the road and reconstruction of the driveways and intersections within the limits.
ECR 120 between Rankin Highway and SH 158
Midland County is pleased to announce the reconstruction of ECR 120 Ph 1. The project limits are on existing CR 120 from Rankin Highway to FM 1213 (or 5 Points at SH 158). The project will be constructed in two phases. Phase 1a from Ranking Highway to FM 715. The second phase (1b) will be from FM 715 to FM 1213. The first phase from Ranking Highway to FM 715 will affect traffic by only allowing local traffic onto CR 120. The neighborhood south of CR 120 between Ranking Highway and FM 715 will be diverted south to CR 130 for access to Ranking Highway and FM 715. CR 1180 will have limited cross traffic north and south. The dates for the first phase will be as follows:
The County is constructing new Yukon Road between the intersection of SH1788 and Loop 40 at the Midland International Airport to the intersection of SH 191 and Yukon Road. This road will be a two lane paved road.
Schedule: This project is ongoing. Completion is expected in the spring of 2023.
The County is constructing a loop through Midland County starting at the west intersection of Loop 250 and Interstate 20. The new loop will progress south and east until it intersects with SH 158 near FM 1379. This road will be a two lane paved road.
Schedule: Parts of the road are completed. The remainder will be completed by summer of 2023.
Danny's Paving is now working on Phase 2 off of CR 60. They have finished the portion of CR 30. They will move south to CR 35 next. They will continue south until CR 40 is done. Work will be in both clusters/phases until the project is done.
