LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Lubbock motorists are being asked to prepare for changes at one of the biggest and busiest intersections in Lubbock; 19th and the West Loop. Early this week construction crews will switch all traffic onto the southbound overpass so that the northbound overpass can be torn down and completely rebuilt. Other changes and detours are as follows:
TxDOT says this configuration will last 4 months. TxDOT also says this is part of a $17.6 million American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) project. TxDOT hopes to improve safety by removing the 19th Street clover-leaf interchange and replacing frontage roads. Crews are also widening the West Loop from four to six lanes.
