Texas Transportation Commission Announces Highway Improvements in Lamesa and Big Spring

The Texas Transportation Commission has prioritized funding for two major projects in the South Plains to address safety and congestion.

Although the TTC has not identified the scope of the projects, they have identified two areas that have received priority funding. The Lamesa Southern Cross Connector from Texas State Highway 349 to US Highway 87 in Dawson County and the US 87 Big Spring Bypass in Howard County will be the focus of the improvements.

According to Commissioner Fred Underwood, the projects will address downtown congestion in the areas and improve mobility.

“Identifying these projects as priorities demonstrates the understanding that rural Texas has been, and continues to be, a vital piece of our state’s transportation puzzle,” said Commissioner Fred Underwood, Texas Transportation Commission. “These projects will allow citizens to have greater connectivity and safer roadways. I’m pleased to see them both moving forward.”

No information was supplied on potential start dates for the project.
