PERMIAN BASIN, Texas (Nexstar)- The Texas Department of Transportation has issued the following traffic alerts for this week:
MIDLAND COUNTY: Drivers should watch for flaggers and warning signs as they prepare for a traffic shift to the new pavement. Crews will adjust the concrete barrier on the north service road between West loop 250 and KC Pipe near County Road 1255.
Traffic in the area by April 14th will be switched to the new pavement and businesses will access the driveways from the left side of the roadways gaps in the concrete barrier.
MIDLAND COUNTY: The entrance and exit ramps at Midkiff road are closed, watch out for slow-moving construction vehicles entering and exiting the frontage roads.

The railroad construction will take 1-2 weeks to complete and reconstructing the railroad crossing will take 2-3 weeks. Drivers should pay attention to the temporary portable traffic signals on both ends of the detour.
