FIXING US 385
Over the years, we have worked to expedite the build-out of US 385 to a four-lane divided roadway between Odessa-Midland and I-10. US 385 serves as a critical backbone for connected I-10 and I-20, in an area heavily impacted by energy production. And that’s not just oil and gas, but solar and wind energy as well.
In the 2020 UTP approved earlier this year, an additional $35 million in funding was provided for the last of the 3 segments, to upgrade the entire segment of US 385 from Crane to McCamey at US 67. Construction is already underway on previous phases of the project.
In addition, work is beginning on the connecting segment of US 67. This project includes rehab for the existing roadway and the addition of passing lanes.
