Our infrastructure is outdated and being beaten by the oilfield traffic that is on our roads, but help is coming soon.

According to the Odessa American, the projected $600 million allocation for the area should be coming in later this month.

The money will be split between 2020 and 2021 for $300 million each year and will help the road problems but will not solve them.

The first project slated for the money will be improving I-20 in Ector and Midland counties to add capacity to the interstate.
