Roadways on the South Plains still closed

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - There are still many area roadways that you need to watch out for.

Parts of the Tahoka Highway are still undriveable with as much as 16 inches of water in some places, especially near O'Donnell. Traffic is still detoured to Brownfield.

Meanwhile, there are two roads in Garza County still closed.

FM 669, also known as the Gail Highway, and FM 1313.

So TxDOT officials say 669 will be closed for several weeks, first to dry out, and then to make repairs.

And in Southwest Lubbock County, just off Slide Road, County Road 7700 is blocked off.  Heavy rains have left that road looking as though it has crumbled from an earthquake.

So, if you are planning a road trip, TxDOT urges drivers to plan their route carefully.

 KCBD NewsChannel 11 will continue to bring you updates on the road conditions.
