Heads Up: 191 Is Under Construction
In case you haven’t been down 191 lately or if it is not part of your daily commute, let me give you a heads up because I do travel this highway quite frequently. According to TXDot, they have begun resurfacing a portion of 191 already. I learned this the hard way the other day FYI, as you can see in the photos I took while waiting ‘patiently’ in the long line. lol
Beware when traveling into Midland and into Odessa on certain days. The project will span 9 miles of 191 between East Loop 338 in Odessa and FM 1788 in Midland. Over the last week or so I have noticed different ramp closings, so be aware that this will be the case and the exit you may be used to taking could be closed on any given day. Lane closures are also expected throughout the duration of the resurfacing.
Law enforcement will be watching this area and these work zones carefully so pay attention to signs and workers. The project is expected to be completed by December.
