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. A bridge-class culvert will be replaced at 4-Mile Draw. Temporary traffic signals will be in operation around the clock at the culvert. Running a red light in this situation could be absolutely catastrophic. The lane will be limited to 11-foot wide loads. The physical structure will be very narrow and will not be wide enough to allow two vehicles to pass or to allow wide loads to cross. The speed limit in the work zone is 45 miles per hour. 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. This is part of a project to improve about 10.8 miles of Highway 285 between County Road 232 and Orla (RM 652) north of Pecos. Constructors Inc. of Carlsbad, N.M., won the project with a low bid of $12,525,496. A second project is under way just to the south of this project. Two additional projects for U.S. Highway 285 are scheduled for to begin in Summer of 2018.
