New traffic lights to start Monday, Slide & North Loop

By James Clark - email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Lubbock motorists might have noticed that TxDOT opened Slide Road underneath the North Loop 289 overpass Thursday evening.  Since then traffic lights have been blinking red.  However, on Monday the City of Lubbock will start operating the traffic lights along the newly opened interchange. 

Slide Road previously ended at 4th Street.  It now extends to several block north of Erskine.  The City of Lubbock paid $2.1 million for the extension of Slide from 4th to Loop 289, and another $19 million for the extension of Slide Road to Erskine.  The city says it also chipped in $13.5 million of the total $25.5 million for work on the overpasses at 4th and at Slide.
