Off-duty officers will help direct traffic.

The construction is part of the Loop 1604 North Expansion Project, which calls for improvements on the highway between State Highway 16 (Bandera Road) and Interstate 35.

The plan is to expand Loop 1604 to a 10-lane expressway with a shoulder lane in each direction, plus a high-occupancy vehicle lane in each direction.
