LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Great news for Lubbock motorists; there are still plenty of orange road construction barrels, but 4th street under the West Loop is now partially open. TxDOT crews started a detour of 4th street back in late September of 2009 for the construction of a new overpass.
Motorists were told 4th street under the West Loop would be closed for 15 months. It actually took a little longer than that. The Loop 289 overpass over 4th street was demolished and rebuilt to accommodate the widening of the Loop to three main lanes in each direction.
