Five projects worth approximately $100 million have been planned over the next few years along US Highway 285 in Reeves and Loving Counties from south of Pecos to the New Mexico County Line. The focus of these projects is on widening the existing 2 lane highway into a “Super 2” freeway which creates alternating passing lanes throughout the length of the road. Construction has already begun on the first phase of the 10-mile project from County Road 232 to State Highway 302. The rest of these projects are slated to begin by Summer 2019.
