Red Raider Roadway Breaks Ground

Almost 40 years after the East-West Freeway was first talked about the plans are finally coming to fruition. The 8.5 mile Marsha Sharp Freeway first appeared in the city's 1964 transportation plan. On Tuesday Tx-Dot has finally broken ground in the project.

The freeway will slice diagonally through Lubbock, from the west Loop at Brownfield Highway to 4th St. just east of Interstate 27. The first phase seen here in red will take about two years. It includes the widening of west Loop 289, from slide to 34th St. the rebuilding of frontage roads, and extending 50th St. to Frankford.

The entire project will take more than a decade to complete with the final phase beginning sometime after 2014.
