McAllen, Tx 

The junction of Bicentennial Boulevard which intersects with the Expressway will change the landscape Valley residents are accustomed to. 

Expressway 83, near Bicentennial Boulevard, has been a major project for the TxDot crew. 


Bicentennial ramp project is connected to Expressway 83 to give drivers access to Mcallen’s airport and The Plaza Mall. According to KRGV.COM, “The interchange will look drastically different once all the work is complete.”

On Tuesday, March 27, the crew of TxDot started this project. The process of this project was delayed ten years later because it caused fatal car crashes. They have informed us, that the project is expected to take approximately three years to complete. TxDot advises drivers to depart to their destination early or find an alternate route to avoid expected delays.


Roads are used every day by individuals who need to drive to work. Jacqueline Lopez, a current driver who uses the expressway for practical purposes says, “These roads are actually helpful because I take them every day and it makes it easier and faster to get to work safe.”
