Texas Department of Transportation hosted the public meeting to discuss converting certain I-27 access roads, which are now two-way lanes, into one-way streets.
Many saying, they're against the planned construction project that would change the flow of traffic in and out of Plainview.
TX-DOT engineers say those changes will increase safety and mobility, but those opposed, say the project's cost far outweighs it's benefits.

The project would cost $17 million, $14.6 of which is covered by a transportation safety fund set up through tax money already set aside.
