The first major road closure related to the reconstruction of the McAllen-Pharr interchange will happen Wednesday.
The project will require the shutdown of the westbound Sugar Road exit ramp for the next two years. TX-DOT crews broke ground in August on the $300 million project that will completely remake what is the busiest interchange in the Rio Grande Valley.
The entire project is expected to take three years to complete. The project will widen the freeways leading to and away from the interchange from three to four lanes.
In addition, the flyovers will be widened to two lanes, and the main lane ramps will be reworked. For daily updates on ramp and lane closures, go to TX-DOT’s webpage, Facebook page, and Twitter account.
