LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Big changes start Monday for Lubbock drivers. For six to eight months, all Interstate 27 traffic, both north and southbound, will be moved onto the northbound overpass. It will be two lanes in each direction.
Also, first the week or so of construction, those going eastbound at the interchange will have to detour south and use the 19th street turnaround. Those going westbound will have to detour to the north and use the Municipal Drive turnaround. These changes are so that construction crews can begin demolishing and rebuilding the southbound overpass bridge.
Once complete, I-27 will have a new & improved interchange with the Marsha Sharp Freeway. It's part of the MSF Phase IV, which is $47.7 Million and completes the connection from the freeway to the Interstate.
