TxDOT public information officer Adele Lewis says lane closures at one of the city’s busiest intersections will likely cause delays.  McNiel Ave. underneath US 82/Kell Freeway will be under minor construction starting Monday, December 14th at 8am until Wednesday, December 16th at 5pm.

Traffic will be confined to one lane in each direction under the freeway. Motorists are urged to avoid the intersection if possible. When complete McNiel will be wide enough to accommodate a double left turn for motorists on Kell West Blvd. turning South on to McNiel.  A similar job was done on Lawrence in early November.
