Dallas : Parts of I-20 to Close in West Fort Worth

Parts of Interstate 20 eastbound in Fort Worth will be closed Sunday through Friday for construction activities.

The left lane of I-20 eastbound from FM 1187 to peripheral 820 west will be closed nightly from 7pm to 6am if weather conditions permit.

The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) advised drivers to find alternate routes while the highway is closed.

According to TxDOT, 167 workers and road users died in work zones during 2019.

TxDOT said speeding and inattention to the driver are the main causes of these deaths, and they can be completely prevented.

Drivers should be aware that while roads are closed, extreme precautionary measures must be taken when driving to protect the safety of road users and workers.

Officials explained that said action was carried out after receiving complaints that illegal games were taking place there.
