SAN ANGELO – After three and a half years, construction on the roadway interchange of US 67/277 north from Howard College to the Tom Green County Detention Facility has opened.
After being under construction for nearly three years, the work is finally done. At 3:00 p.m. on Tuesday, July 26, 2022, TxDOT opened all lanes of the highway.
"Today we are opening the main lanes of US 67 by Howard College," TxDOT Public Information Officer Karen Threlkeld said, "This is a culmination of a project that started in November 2018 and because of COVID, was delayed about a year. We are finished today with it, opening the project."
TxDOT also asked everyone to be safe when using the re-opened highway.
"Safety is always paramount to those of us at TxDOT, "Threlkeld said, "For not only our workers, those in the work zone, and our contractors, but also to the traveling public. We hope as we open up these main lanes people will be conscious this is a traffic shift. It's a change in the pattern that we have known for the past three years or so. We're asking people to be just pay attention in this area, be very patient, and follow the signs, they're brand new."
