Ranger Hill construction causes delays on I-20

EASTLAND, Texas (KTAB/KRBC) - Construction on Ranger Hill is causing delays on I-20 in Eastland County Monday. 

A Tweet from TxDOT Brownwood reads, "Eastland Co Traffic Alert: 15-30 min delays on I-20 at Ranger Hill, 11a-3p TODAY, 5/14, as excavation activities continue in the $78M reconstruction project."

A press release describes the Ranger Hill update as a "safety-related project [that] will upgrade the interstate to meet current TxDOT and federal design and safety standards within the Ranger Hill area. Currently, I-20 features a steep 6% grade and a sharp “s” curve on the hill, with no frontage roads. While TxDOT has implemented various safety upgrades in recent years, such as reducing the speed limit, construction of a concrete median barrier, pavement improvements and installation of high-mast lighting for increased nighttime visibility, the roadway still does not meet current TxDOT standards."

Primary construction commenced in September of 2017.
