Thursday afternoon, after 4pm, the Texas Department of Transportation announced the re-opening of some Marsha Sharp Freeway (US 62/82) main lanes in Southwest Lubbock.

The eastbound mainlanes of the Marsha Sharp Freeway are now open again at the Spur 327 interchange.  They had been closed since Monday for bridge demolition and reconstruction.

The construction is part of Phase 5B of the Marsha Sharp Freeway project which will extend the freeway to 82nd Street (Donald Preston Drive) in Wolfforth.
