Southbound I-27 lane closure scheduled

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Motorists traveling on southbound I-27 over the next couple of months will see traffic reduced to one lane as the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) continues work on a project to upgrade the storm-water pump station at North Loop 289.

Beginning Wednesday, March 18, the two southbound right lanes and shoulder of I-27 at North Loop 289 will be closed to traffic as crews continue work to replace the existing drainage pipe, said Jeremy Dearing, P.E., TxDOT project engineer.

"The work is part of a $6.1 million project to upgrade storm-water pump station facilities along I-27 in Lubbock and Hale counties," Dearing said. "Over the next several months, crews will be replacing the concrete pipe that's located under the roadway with a concrete box," he said. "This will increase the drainage capacity of the storm-water pump facility."

The lane closures on northbound I-27, reduced to one lane of traffic in January, will also remain in place. The project is scheduled to be completed by summer 2009.
