TxDOT will begin work on a project that will update the traffic signals on US 84 at the Loop 289/Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard interchange in the city of Lubbock.
Contractors will begin setting up traffic control along the project limits this week with work beginning May 15. Project improvements include new traffic signals and signal poles, US 84 median work, adding flashing yellow left turn arrows and the installation of a vehicle detection system designed to improve traffic flow on US 84.

Motorists can expect multiple lane closures and the possibility of the intersection temporarily becoming a four-way stop. The project is scheduled to be completed in late December of 2017.
