The Texas Department of Transportation is set to start a project to upgrade a portion of Loop 340, through Robinson, in McLennan County.

TxDOT expects to start the project on Monday, March 7.

The multi-phase project is designed to increase safety and efficiency. It will extend frontage roads along Loop 340 from I-35 northeast to US 77. 

An overpass will also be constructed at Old Robinson Road, along with new entrance/exit ramps at various locations within the project area.  

TxDOT says the work will take place between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. Monday to Friday with some Saturday work possible. 

Big Creek Construction, LTD., of Hewitt, will handle the project priced at $22.3 million and is scheduled to be finished the Fall of 2018.

Drivers can expect temporary lane closures, flaggers and temporary delays within the project area for the duration of the project.
