HUDSON OAKS – To improve safety and mobility in this growing area of Parker County, the Interstate 20 east and westbound frontage roads will be converted to one-way from Hudson Oaks Drive to Farm to Market Road 5 (Mikus Road) in February.

To accommodate the frontage road conversion, new traffic signals at U.S. 180 and Hudson Oaks Drive are scheduled to be activated the first week of February, and then the conversion of the frontage roads is planned for the following week. The conversion from two-way to one-way operation will occur over a two-day period during non-peak travel times when motorists should expect delays during this moving operation. Weather permitting:

  • Eastbound I-20 frontage road conversion: Wednesday, Feb. 14 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
  • Westbound I-20 frontage road conversion: Thursday, Feb. 15 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Afterwards, a $4 million project will begin to construct turnarounds and reconstruct the I-20/FM 5 intersection including permanent traffic signals to provide better traffic flow.  This project is estimated for completion in early 2019.  Please see attachment on I-20 frontage road improvements.

TxDOT asks motorists to be alert, follow all traffic signs and adjust speed with this new traffic pattern and during construction. Check DriveTexas.org. for lane closures.

Safety is a top priority at TxDOT, and the foundation for the agency’s planning, building and maintaining of projects across the state. When driving through a work zone, some simple steps to take are: slow down, pay attention, avoid distractions such as cell phones, be patient and plan ahead.

TxDOT appreciates the patience of motorists, and encourages attention to all warning signs within the construction work zone while crews work diligently to complete this work as quickly and as safely as possible.
