It’s the busiest intersection in the Rio Grande Valley, according to TxDOT. And the congestion just got a whole lot worse this week when construction crews closed parts of Shary Road down to just one lane of traffic to travel north and one to travel south.
Construction started this week to put in a raised median from Victoria Road (the Home Depot entrance) to the entrance to Cimarron (Cimarron Drive).
Concrete barriers were placed along Shary Road north and south of the expressway to take up the middle lane and one lane to each side. The three lanes will be blocked off for three months, according to Mission Police Chief Robert Dominguez.
