The overpass located at US 84 at Interstate 20 is notoriously dangerous. 

TxDOT took the danger into consideration after many major accidents occurred on that stretch of highway. 

A few months ago, the overpass was reopened after a year.

It was rebuilt and safety signage was placed to make it safer for drivers.

Just days later, an 18-wheeler was in a major accident on the overpass. 

KRBC's Dayne Marae spoke to locals about how they feel about the safety situation on the overpass.

Many Nolan County locals are used to the overpass but believe that it would be dangerous for many travelers that are not used to the roads in the area.

TxDOT says that they have future plans to put mast safety lighting on the overpass for better visibility. 

They recently posted new safety signage as well as pavement markers.

TxDOT is also considering over improvements, but no definite plans or funds have been identified just yet.

Nolan County locals are pleased with TxDOT's updates.
