West Fourth Street Widening Project Resumes Sunday
A project to rebuild and widen a segment of West Fourth Street in Lubbock will resume on Sunday.
TxDOT will resume work on the project to widen the segment of West Fourth Street from Frankford to Upland Avenues.
Work on the $7.4 million project began in September 2012.
Work will resume Sunday evening, and the project to mill and repave the intersection is anticipated to take several days to complete, and will mostly be done from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m.
“Most of the major construction work has been completed,” said Will Barnett, Lubbock Area engineer. “We suspended operations last fall before we could place all the road surface hotmix due to temperature restrictions.”
During the nighttime work, motorists can expect various lane closures in the area. When work will be shifted back to daytime, motorists can expect daytime single lane closures.
The speed limit along Fourth Street will remain 45 miles per hour during construction, and drivers should use caution through the work zone.
The expected completion date for the project is early July of 2013.
