FORT STOCKTON – A 32-mile project to add passing lanes on U.S. Highway 67 in Pecos and Upton counties is under way. Traffic disruptions will be kept at a minimum in the early stages as culverts are widened.

The project calls for the road to be rehabilitated and alternating passing lanes to be added. The project is scheduled to be under construction for about 42 months.

Work is starting on the southern end, but culvert work may be done throughout the project limits. The project basically stretches from Interstate 10 in Pecos County to McCamey in Upton County.

The speed limit in the work zone is 65 miles per hour. Law enforcement has been asked to patrol the area heavily.

Johnson Brothers, a Southland Company, of Roanoke won the job with a low bid of $48.9 million.
