Traveling down Highway 77 through Bishop should become an easier task over the next few months. Texas Department of Transportation officials said all of the major work along the eight-mile stretch will be completed in January.

The new road surface and overpasses are part of the effort to turn Highway 77 into I-69. That is a proposed super highway which will start in Michigan and head all the way to our border.

During this construction phase, many drivers have been completely avoiding the highway.
