Southbound I-27 main lanes scheduled to reopen Monday

The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) continues work on an American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) funded project that will make roadway improvements to I-27 in Lubbock.

All southbound I-27 lanes, including the 4th Street on-ramp and the 19th Street exit ramp are scheduled to be re-opened to traffic on Monday, Aug. 24. Crews will then shift their focus of make repairs to the northbound I-27 lanes, between 19th and 4th Streets.

Northbound traffic will be reduced to one lane through the work zone and will close the 19th Street entrance ramp to I-27.

The project will make more than $6.2 million in repairs to various segments of the concrete pavement and bridge approaches on I-27 and replace the bridge deck and making safety upgrades to the Keuka Street overpass.


The I-27 project is one of five projects awarded to the Lubbock District through the ARRA. Roadway projects in Castro, Hale and Floyd counties were awarded economic stimulus funds and will also see repairs and maintenance in the coming months.
