LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - On Wednesday, January 27, the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) will close FM 1729 to both east and westbound traffic under I-27 in New Deal. The closure will allow contractors to place bridge beams. Work to place the beams is expected to take one to two days to complete, and will take place weather permitting.
East and westbound FM 1729 will be detoured around the work area.
The work is part of a $7.3 million project that will reconstruct six bridge structures along I-27 near New Deal. The project is expected to complete in October 2010.
