The I-20 frontage roads between SH 161 and Belt Line Road are under construction (partially open), with completion set for early 2023, opening 318 acres for new development.
Expected to End: In 2023
Beginning Thursday Jan. 28, the traffic on Robinson Road will be shifted from the temporary lanes to the permanent configuration where it passes under I-20. The frontage road access will remain the same (EB to Robinson from Lake Ridge / SH 161 and WB from Robinson to Lake Ridge / SH 161). Delays are expected during the changeover as the traffic signals and striping need to be changed to accommodate the new traffic patterns.
The next stage of construction will begin on Tuesday, Feb. 2 at Carrier and I-20. Delays are anticipated as these changes are made. The NBLT to access the WBFR at Carrier will be closed. The SB right lane will be opened for traffic traveling south to access the new I-20 WBFR to travel west to I-20, although the existing entrance ramp will be closed and access to I-20 west will have to be made via the frontage road, through the intersections at Robinson and Lake Ridge / SH 161 to the next available entrance ramp. There will be TXDOT approved detours posted for I-20 west traffic, which will be to direct traffic to I-20 EBFR east and u-turn at Belt Line (FM 1382) to travel west on IH 20. An unofficial, alternate suggestion detour to I-20 west would be using Westchester to Robinson from NB Carrier. This alternate suggestion will not have detour signing as the official detour will have already been posted, and is merely an alternative suggestion. This will mean the WBFR at Robinson will be open to traffic for those following the WB I-20 detour from Carrier.
