LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - TxDOT plans some major closures along west Loop 289 as part of the Northwest Passage Project. Starting Wednesday all west loop traffic will be detoured onto frontage roads between Frankford and Quaker.
4th Street traffic will also be detoured to frontage roads and have to u-turn back to 4th Street. These closures will last for 15-months. During that time, crews will demolish both bridges over 4th Street and rebuild them wider and longer with u-turn lanes underneath.
