Title: US 285 northbound and southbound at mile marker 1
Description: TXDOT - Work on U.S. Highway 285 (Texas) has hit a critical junction that will severely affect traffic patterns between Pecos TX and Orla TX in Reeves County Texas.

Running a red light in this situation could be absolutely catastrophic. The lane will be limited to 11-foot wide loads.

Delays can be expected. Alternate routes are strongly encouraged if possible. Motorists are reminded that state law requires them to obey pilot cars and warning signs as well as any flaggers encountered in the work zone.
