Lane Closures scheduled for West Loop 289 project

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Beginning at 10:00 p.m. Sunday night, the Texas Department of Transportation will reduce north and southbound Loop 289 to one lane in each direction from 34th street to Frankford Avenue.

Traffic can expect to be in a one lane configuration for the next 12 to 15 months. Crews will also be removing overhead sigh bridges and closing the northbound Loop 289 to westbound SH 114 (19th street) cloverleaf exit. Traffic should expect delays throughout the night. Northbound Loop traffic wanting to go west on SH 114 will need to use the u-turn lane located at Frankford Avenue.

These lane reductions and ramp closure will allow the contractor, Lane Construction, to begin widening Loop 289 from 4 to 6 lanes and begin work on the 19th Street intersection.

All frontage road lanes will be open to traffic. Message boards informing motorists of the scheduled lane closures are in place.

This work is part of the West Loop 289 project that will make more than $17 million of improvements, including widening the Loop from four to six lanes, rebuilding the 19th Street overpass, adding continuous frontage roads, and concrete paving SH 114.

Work will take place weather permitting.
