WACO, Texas – The first phase of the Texas Department of Transportation’s Mall-to-Mall project is set to begin soon in Waco and will require a six-month road closure.

The project will begin Jan. 31 and will require the closure of Union Pacific Railroad (UPRR) U-turns at Beverly Drive, according to TxDOT.

“To safely close the UPRR U-turns at Beverly Drive, crews will perform various lane and ramp closures nightly from January 31 through the morning of February 5. Crews will install a barrier and place temporary tapes in the area “, said TxDOT.

All closings will be between 7 p.m. and 7 a.m. Each morning, the eastbound feeder road, westbound feeder road and all ramps will reopen.

The following areas will be closed during night work:
• UPRR U-turns at Beverly Drive
• SH 6 West Frontage Road from Bagby Avenue to UPRR U-turn
• SH 6 frontage road west from UPRR U-turn to Industrial Drive
• West exit ramp to Beverly Avenue
• West ramp before Beverly Avenue
• West exit ramp to Imperial Drive
• SH 6 East Frontage Road from UPRR U-turn to Exchange Parkway
• East exit ramp to Bagby Avenue

TxDOT’s Mall-to-Mall project spans from US 84 to Bagby Avenue. The project is planned to improve the safety and mobility of motorists in the region. It will add continuous frontage roads, add U-turn bridges, reconfigure entrance and exit ramps, and reconstruct existing bridges.

The 3.5-mile project, undertaken by Webber, LLC, will cost approximately $55 million and is expected to be completed in early 2024, weather permitting, per TxDOT.
