TXDot to Consider Restricting Semi Trucks Using Passing Lane
RIO GRANDE VALLEY — TXDot is looking to make a change on the roadway to restrict semi trucks from using the left lane on the expressway.
TXDot's Pharr District Engineer, Mario Jorge, says the public came to them asking to restrict semi trucks from using the left lane to keep the flow of traffic. Jorge says TXDot did a study and agreed with the public, but unlike other cities in Texas, they'll allow the trucks to use the left lane to pass. Jorge says in order for this to go into effect each city from Brownsville to Mission has to pass an ordinance. Jorge says the soonest we can see the new law in effect will be in a year.
