Placedo Benavidas Road Construction Nearing Completion

New Roadway Should Help To Ease Traffic Headaches Along North Navarro

According to Ken Gill, engineer with the city of Victoria, Salem road between Zac Lentz parkway and the new Placedo Benavidas road is currently receiving a new pavement overlay and slight widening, in order to meet the projected increase in traffic when the connecting Placedo Benavidas road opens. Placedo Benavidas road between Larkspur and Navarro is undergoing a final surface overlay at this time.  The road is open between Larkspur and Salem. Salem road will be closed between Zac Lentz and Placedo Benavidas for about two months. Gill says the entire length of Placedo Benavidas road between Navarro and Salem should open by mid summer.
