ABILENE, Texas -

TxDOT crews will repair cracked pavement on major roads in the coming weeks.

On the last week of February, work will begin on I-20 and FM 603 in Callahan county.

At the same time, work will also begin in Taylor county on I-20 and the Winters Freeway.

At some spots, intersections and lanes could be closed. There could also be some detours.Drivers are urged to watch out for construction crews.

According to a statement from TxDOT, crack sealing preserves the life of a road by applying sealing material directly into the cracks of the pavement to prevent moisture damage.

TxDOT's Abilene district usually schedules the work annually during the cooler months.
