Big Construction Project Getting Underway in Randall Co.

Amarillo, Texas - A big road construction project is set to get underway Monday in Randall County. TxDOT is replacing the bridge on Washington near the Don Harrington Boy Scout Camp.

Starting Monday, traffic will be reduced to one lane in each direction on the existing bridge while crews widen the approaching roadway.

In February, expect traffic on the entire bridge to be down to just one lane.

It's being replaced because of natural deterioration and modern trucks are too heavy for the old bridge to handle.

The price tag is about $2 million and it should be wrapped up by December.
