LAREDO, Tx- Effective today, June 4, 2011, Loop 20 traffic between SH 359 and the Tex-Mex Railroad bridge is being shifted to the eastside of Loop 20. Specifically, northbound traffic will be placed on the new Loop 20 northbound frontage road alignment while southbound traffic is being placed on the former northbound Loop 20 lanes.
Traffic will be placed in a one lane configuration temporarily during traffic switch work. Off duty police officers will be assisting with this traffic change.
Pleae be advised that traffic exiting Bencha Drive and Maria Luisa Drive from the east will not have access to or from the Loop 20 southbound lanes.
Please drive slow and place close attention to traffic safety signs, road markings and channelization devices in and around the work area.
This recent change in traffic alignment will facilitate the construction of a new southbound frontage road and installation of a new drainage trunk line by Ballenger Construction Company, the contractor for the Cuatro Vientos Interchange Project at Loop 20-SH 359.
