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:

  • Realigning and reconstructing the interstate to straighten out and soften the curve and reduce the steep grade of the hill
  • Adding a new 12-foot wide westbound climbing (or passing) lane
  • Increasing shoulder widths to 10 feet in each direction
  • Adding new 12-foot wide eastbound and westbound continuous two-way frontage roads with shoulders in each directionand 12-foot-wide lanes
  • Reconstructing the safety rest area entrance/exit ramps to align with the new frontage road configuration
