Street construction: Lane switch on Sam Houston Drive

Traffic will be switched on Friday to the west side of Sam Houston Drive between Laurent and Ben Jordan streets.

That segment of Sam Houston Drive will provide two-way traffic, according to a news release for the city of Victoria.

Workers have finished laying concrete on the west side and will now begin construction of underground utilities and paving on the east side.

Work on the east side of the street is expected to last about six months.
