Be Aware! Concrete Street Dividers On Highway 191 and Loop 250 Area in Midland!
We have heard a lot lately about the construction work on Loop 250 and Highway 191. They are currently working on the 'reverse ramps' project. And, if you use any roads in the area of Loop 250 and Highway 191 in Midland you can currently see that YES, the construction has begun.
BARRIER CONSTRUCTION DIVIDERS ARE UP!
The biggest thing you will see as of Jan 10, 2022, is the BIG concrete barriers being used in the area. They are being used to divide the frontage roads right in front of HEB in Midland on Loop 250 and the road leading West.
USE PRECAUTION WHEN ENTERING THE BUSINESSES AND ROADS ON THE FRONTAGE ROADS
The other day I was heading to Sam's Club and the CONCRETE BARRIERS did surprise me in certain areas. To go into the business or roads, they have DIVIDED the concrete barriers into sections. This might surprise you if you haven't driven in the area a lot lately. As always be aware!
YOU WILL NOTICE ORANGE CONES EVERYWHERE AS WELL
Along with the concrete dividers, you will notice a bunch of orange cones everywhere to keep you from going down the wrong way down one of the sides of the concrete barriers.
WATCH FOR VEHICLES EXITING FROM THE BUSINESSES AND ROADS ON THE SIDE
You will have to keep extra attention on the vehicles that want to enter into the frontage road from the business and roads on the side. Don't let the concrete barriers distract you from the oncoming cars.
BE CAREFUL NOT TO GET TOO CLOSE TO THE CONCRETE BARRIERS
This is the one thing that I almost did. The last thing you want to do is scrape your vehicle on these barriers. Be careful and as always slow down in these areas.
It's going to be a long year of construction in this area and I'm sure it's just beginning but if you frequent the area, just make sure to look out for each other and be safe!
