TxDOT to Start Reconstruction of US Highway 87- Woodrow Road Intersection

TxDOT Lubbock Office

The Texas Department of Transportation late Monday announced the reconstruction of the US Highway 87- Woodrow Road intersection will start on Saturday.

The project will cost $10.6 million and take about one year to complete.  The reconstruction of the intersection will see an overpass built for the main lanes of US Highway 87, entrance and exit ramps for the intersection and additional improvements to Woodrow Road.

Another safety improvement for the project is the permanent closing off of access from US 87 to both ends of Loop 493 on the west side of US 87.

Will Barnett, TxDOT’s Lubbock area engineer said, “We know this project is located on a heavily traveled route and is going to affect a lot of motorists. TxDOT is committed to keep traffic flowing, but US 87 and Woodrow Road motorists can expect various lane closures, traffic shifts and detours throughout the duration of the project.

“Our goal is to make sure we get the work done in the safest and most efficient way possible.”

Both north- and southbound US 87 traffic, through the construction zone, will be reduced to 65 mph, Barnett added.

This Saturday, September 28, a segment of Woodrow Road will be closed West of US 87. Construction crews will be working on drainage structures for Woodrow Road.
