Dowtown Missouri Avenue signals convert to all-way stops:
Traffic signals at four intersections were permanently converted to all-way stop signs on Thursday, March 19 along Missouri Avenue in downtown Midland, reducing overall wait time for drivers in the area.
The intersections, which are at A Street, Marienfeld Street, Colorado Street and Loraine Street, no longer warrant traffic signals after the City of Midland’s Transportation Division performed extensive review of signals throughout the City for ongoing timing changes and other maintenance activities. Due to the relatively sporadic traffic patterns along Missouri, it is expected that this change will result in a reduction in overall delay for most users of the intersections.
Utility Extension Program:
The Contractor working for the City of Midland on the 2014 Utility Extension Program will be performing work in the area of Mineola Street. During construction several intersections and sections of streets may be reduced to one lane or closed at the following locations: 1) Mineola St. between Wall St. and Industrial Ave.; 2) Industrial Ave. between Mineola St. and Terrell St.; 3) Wall St. between Mineola St. and Terrell St.; and 4) The alley between Mineola St. and Terrell St. immediately north of Wall St.
West Loop 250 & Interstate 20 Service Roads:
TxDOT started a project to install traffic signals on West Loop 250 on the service roads of Interstate 20. During this project, both service roads of Interstate 20 will be four-way stops until the signals are in operation.
Loop 250 Overpass at Interstate 20:
An oversized load caused damage to the overpass on Loop 250 at Interstate 20 on Friday, December 5. Southbound and northbound traffic is down to one lane across the bridge.
Lamesa Road Overpass:
TxDOT has installed temporary signals to allow traffic to use the single lane in alternating fashion. It is extremely important that people obey the signal light to prevent crashes. Half of the bridge will be barricaded to prevent use of the section of the overpass that was severely damaged by an oversized load.
