ABILENE, Texas -

The Texas Department of Transportation and the Abilene Metropolitan Planning Organization hosted a public meeting Tuesday to discuss upcoming projects to convert two-way frontage roads to one-way operation on US 83/84 and Loop 322.

The US 83/84 project will convert about 3 miles of frontage roads from Canyon Rock Road to FM 707. Proposed work also includes modifications to a crossover at Iberis Road for safety reasons. 

The Loop 322 project plan calls for work along four miles of frontage road from Maple Street to SH 36, but current funding allows only the segment from Maple to FM 1750 to be completed as part of this project.

If funds allow, some work on the remaining portion may be done in preparation for its eventual completion.

Work on both projects should begin by the end of the year.
