Construction begins this week on widening 98th St. to a seven lane road. Tex-DOT says the project is needed to meet the growth Lubbock is seeing on the south side. The 14 month project will go through several changes, meaning drivers need to pay attention. The first phase focuses on 98th Street between University and Indiana.
