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.

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.
