It seems like anywhere you drive these days, in Midland or Odessa, you will come upon road construction in some capacity. Because I commute daily, I run into a lot of detours and long lines and one lane roads because the other is being repaired and so on so forth. 

When is the last time you were in the vicinity of Andrews Highway and loop 338 in Odessa? If it has been quite some time, you will not recognize it the next time you are lead in that direction. That intersection is looking a lot different these days.

One day this week as I was heading down my normal route home, I was detoured to loop 338 East. As I was rubbernecking to see what was going on and why this was happening, I discovered that the overpass was being placed onto the bridge that was being constructed over the past few months.

I remember thinking wow, this road doesn't even look the same anymore. I've traveled this road my whole life and now it is getting quite makeover. In fact, as I type this article, no doubt the bridge is now set in its place and is close to being open to be traveled on I'm sure.

If you have not traveled this road from Odessa to Andrews in quite some time, get ready to be pleasantly surprised at the changes.
