    Drivers will soon be taking the revamped Fairway exit ramp off Kell West / US Highway 82. Construction began in early March and by next week, TXDOT is estimating the new ramp will be open. TXDOT says this project is on schedule for opening, all that is left is the striping on the road.
    "It was a concern for years, this area was kind of associated with accidents. There really weren't that many accidents, but there was always the potential and we want to eliminate that potential by moving this current ramp, the new ramp back," said Ben Coker, with TXDOT.
    TXDOT says the old ramp will be torn down once the new ramp is up and running.
