Two new Interstate 10 improvement projects are set to begin in Pecos and Reeves County starting in June.

According to TxDOT, a deal has been reached with a contractor to complete both of the projects.

The first project will work on pavement rehabilitation on Interstate 10 across the Pecos-Reeves County line stretching 6.4 miles west and 4.4 miles east, coming in at just under 11 miles long. The project will work to replace the pavement on all four of the lanes, and is set to finish in late September.

The second project will work on a new surface overlay on Interstate 10 in Reeves County, spanning from Highway 17 to 6.4 miles west of the Pecos County line. The project is set to take around three months as work is done in two-mile segments.

The total cost of both contracts comes to just over $10 million. Speed limits will be reduced to 65 mph in the construction zones and drivers are asked to exercise caution when passing by.
