In July 2017, TxDOT initiated construction of improvements to realign and rebuild I-20 in Eastland County from approximately 3.5 miles east of Loop 254 to .5 miles east of SH 16. This 3-mile project will improve safety by reducing the steep grade and improving the curves at Ranger Hill.
Improvements to address safety and mobility include:
Schedule and Additional Information
Temporary closures on I-20 at Ranger Hill in both directions beginning Sept. 7, 2017: During the next several months, drivers on I-20 in Eastland County between Fort Worth and Abilene could potentially experience short delays due to temporary (generally 20-30 minute) closures of the highway for construction activities. Westbound lanes will be closed at Mile 363, while eastbound lanes will be closed at Mile 355. Most closures will take place between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. twice a week, though the times and days may vary. Please monitor electronic message signs near the construction site for daily updates, as well as Drive Texas and the Brownwood District's Twitter feed. Temporary daytime lane closures may be expected periodically.
