Beginning late Wednesday, December 16, overhead utility work will result in lane closures along the Marsha Sharp Freeway.

According to TxDOT, the project will begin around 11 p.m. Main lanes on the Marsha Sharp Freeway at Upland Avenue will be closed to all traffic.

The closures will allow the South Plains Electric Company to safely remove power lines spanning across the roadways.

The project is only expected to take 15-20 minutes, but motorists are advised to look for alternate routes.

Work will take place weather permitting.
