TxDOT has been doing a study of the whole I-20 corridor in Texas and they have had awesome feedback from all the areas along I-20, except Midland/Odessa.

That means you need to go take the survey and give them your feedback on what needs to be done in Midland/Odessa to make I-20 safer and better to drive on.

The link to the survey is on the TxDOT website.

This survey is beneficial to the future of I-20 in our region for decades to come.

Here are some statistics for I-20 for you:

  • I-20 was originally approved in 1962.
  • The portion in Texas is 634 miles.
  • 32% of the Texas population lives along I-20 (approximately 9.6 million).
  • 172,000 vehicles drive on I-20 daily.
  • There are 1377 bridges and 101 interchanges.

Speaking of bridges, I-20 will have a few changes to the ones here in the area once the plans to redirect I-20 through Midland and Odessa are completed in the next 5-10 years.

The plans for I-20 to go over Midkiff are already underway so that area will be a place to be aware of construction and detours for the next couple of years as they reconstruct that interchange and put I-20 over Midkiff.

The survey only takes about 5 minutes to complete but it is important to let your voice be heard so we can get some useful changes done to our section of I-20 that affects Midland/Odessa.
