Major Changes To Northwest Loop 289 Coming Next Week


Major changes will be made at Northwest Loop 289 in Lubbock next week.

TxDOT crews will begin the process of switching all Loop 289 traffic onto the newly constructed southbound bridge at Quaker Avenue on Monday, October 14th.

The switch is anticipated to take several days to complete, as southbound traffic will be placed on the new bridge first, followed by northbound traffic a few days later.

Once the traffic switch is completed, crews will begin preparations for the demolition of the northbound Loop 289 bridge. Demolition is scheduled to take place during the week of October 21st through the 25th.

Beginning at 8:30 a.m. on Monday, October 21st, all Quaker Avenue/TTU Parkway traffic under the Quaker bridge will be detoured via the frontage roads to Slide Road and US 84. This will allow crews to safely demolish the bridge.

The $26.9 million project funded by the state includes widening Loop 289 from Slide Road to one mile east of Quaker Avenue to six lanes, rebuild the Loop bridges to span over Quaker Avenue and Erskine, and rebuild the frontage roads. Erskine will also be extended under the Loop 289 bridge to connect with the TTU Parkway.
