Updated Road Construction in Lubbock County on US 87 and in Downtown Lubbock
Broadway at Avenue O will be closed for the next three weeks due to construction on Broadway. Drivers will need to detour through to Main Street or 13th Street.
The closure on Broadway is to work on the installation of a underground duct system in Downtown Lubbock that began in March.
Beginning today, motorists traveling on southbound US 87 between Farm to Market Road 1585 and the Lynn County Line will see traffic reduced to one-lane.
The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) is continuing work on a $6.8 million project for roadway improvement.
Motorists are advised to drive with caution through the work zone and look out for workers in the area as they will be milling the current pavement and resurfacing of the road.
Other project improvements on U.S. 87 include adding deceleration lanes, widening crossovers, and restriping the pavement markings.
The project is expected to completed in October 2012 by J. Lee Milligan Construction, from Amarillo.
