LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) will begin work on a $1.6 million project to make improvements to the South Loop 289 frontage roads on Sunday, August 29.
The work to seal coat, overlay and stripe the frontage roads from Slide Road (FM 1730) to Interstate 27 will be performed primarily during over-night hours and is expected to take four to five weeks to complete, said Bryan Wilson, P.E., Lubbock Area engineer.
"Crews will, for the most part, work nights, Sunday through Thursday. No work will be performed on Friday and Saturday nights," Wilson said. "This is a rapid moving mobile operation which will limit the amount of equipment noise on any particular stretch of the project work zone."
Motorists can expect various night-time lane closures to begin at 8 p.m. All lanes will reopen to traffic by 7 a.m. each morning.
Reece Albert, Inc., of San Angelo, has been contracted to perform the work which will prolong the life of the pavement, reduce road noise and improve roadway surface traction during wet conditions. Work will take place weather permitting.
