19th Street traffic signals to be fully activated

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) will fully activate the traffic signals at the 19th Street and west Loop 289 interchange Thursday, June 23.  Motorists will continue to experience lane closures throughout the work zone, but will encounter fully operational traffic signals at the intersection.

Construction has been ongoing since April 2010 and has been part of a $17.6 million American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) project to improve safety and mobility through the area by removing the 19th Street clover-leaf interchange configuration and replacing it with bridges and frontage roads, and by widening West Loop from four to six lanes.

Work will take place weather permitting.  The project is expected to be completed in July with all lanes open. Crews will be gone from the area by late August.
