Midland Reporter-Telegram

Completion of the east end of Loop 250 got one step closer to realization Monday after the Midland Development Corp. approved unanimously to aid the project. Plus, work on improving State Highway 349 became more likely.

The MDC will pledge $2 million for the completion of a curvilinear overpass at Loop 250 and county roads 1150 and 60, a complicated project slated to cost $21.5 million.

The vote itself was for the ratification and approval of a letter, dated Feb. 2, signed and delivered by MDC Chairman Brent Hilliard to the Texas Department of Transportation that lays out the details of the proposal. The MDC is willing to enter into a donation agreement, advanced funding agreement or other appropriate agreement with TxDOT to contribute the funds.
