FM 307 Under Construction in Midland County

Road work is underway along FM 307 in Midland County.
MIDLAND, TX (Local Big 2) -- Road work is underway along FM 307 in Midland County.

The construction project spans from FM 1379 and S CR 1150.

Crews are working to resurface the seven mile stretch and expand the road to five-lanes.


Here are the full details from TX-DOT:

Price Construction will start working on a 7-mile stretch of FM 307 in Midland County next week (week of June 16).

In addition to rehabilitating the road, the project will make FM 307 a five-lane road between FM 1379 and South County Road 1150. Price Construction crews will mill out the existing pavement and replace it during the project. The resurfacing will include the entire width of FM 307 between FM 1379 and South County Road 1150.

Part of the project will include new curb and gutter in the area of Greenwood Elementary School. The construction schedule shows that Price Construction will make every reasonable effort to have work near the school completed before the school year starts.

Speed limits will also be reduced during the project. Areas normally marked for 60 miles per hour will drop to 50 miles per hour during construction. Areas normally marked for 45 miles per hour will drop to 35 miles per hour during construction.

Extra law enforcement presence may be present at times during the project. Traffic fines can be doubled if workers are present when the legal infraction occurs.

While FM 307 will be open to traffic throughout the life of the project, lane closures will be necessary. Motorists are asked to slow down in work zones and obey all warning signs, flaggers and pilot cars.

Work on this $6.38 million contract is scheduled to be completed in February.
