There’s more construction planned, this time a stretch of Interstate 37 that runs from the Red Bird Lane exit to the Highway 77 interchange.

TXDOT will host an open house tonight from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at Calallen High School to let people know about the project.

TXDOT offcials say this is a lane balancing project.

In that area, traffic fluctuates between five lanes and three lanes on either side of I-37.

This project will even the road to four lanes on each side.

There’s also plans to replace the Nueces River Bridge with a higher and wider structure.

So when is work supposed to start? And what will the project mean for traffic in this major artery?

We’ll explain more tonight on KRIS 6 News.

And if you can’t make the meeting, you can find all of the information on TXDOT’s website.
