I-20 Benbrook Project
The Texas Department of Transportation is implementing safety and mobility improvements to I-20 in Benbrook from Winscott Road to Bryant Irvin Road. The 1-mile project will add one auxiliary lane in each direction to address weaving and congestion issues near entrance and exit ramps. The $21 million project was awarded to a contractor on Oct. 3, 2019. It is estimated for completion in 2021.
Auxiliary lanes, or extended entrance/exit lanes, are elongated ramps that serve as an additional lane to give drivers more distance to enter and exit the roadway. Drivers have more time to adjust to the proper speed before merging. This reduces the number of conflicts between slow speed and higher speed vehicles and allows for improved traffic flow.
