Construction began in September 2017 on the widening of US-67, from Belt Line Road to IH-20, to provide congestion relief and operations improvements to the US-67 corridor. The six-mile project includes widening of the existing 4-lane roadway to a 6-lane roadway and the installation of Texas U-turns at FM 1382 and at Belt Line Road. The project is scheduled to be completed in 2019. Design and construction of this project is managed by the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT).
During the construction project, various overnight ramp and main lane closures may occur. These temporary closures are generally scheduled between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m. During this time period all traffic lanes and entrance and exit ramps are anticipated to be open during normal daylight hours.
