Roads closed for surfacing project this week

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Beginning Saturday, May 19, Ballou Pavement Solutions Incorporated, under contract with the City of Lubbock, began work on the 2012 Micro-Surfacing project. The residential areas affected during this work process will be the subdivision between Slide Road and Frankford Avenue from 82rd Street to 98th Street.

Major thoroughfares and collectors will have two applications of Micro-Surfacing applied; residential streets having only one. Construction will occur at different times which will result in times that the roadway could be blocked off with no workers present.

More roadwork will be conducted by Lane Construction as part of a $2.4 million Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) project to rebuild the 19th Street intersections at University and Indiana Avenues. It will take two to three weeks to complete depending on the weather.

They will be working to pave the new westbound frontage roads on Marsha Sharp Freeway (MSF) from Avenue L to Buddy Holly Avenue. The westbound lanes will be closed the entire week, beginning May 21, and are expected to reopen to traffic sometime Friday afternoon, May 25. The eastbound lanes will also be closed to traffic to facilitate work and serve as an equipment staging area for the operation and are expected to be reopened to traffic on Wednesday, May 23.

The traffic will change eastbound 19th Street (SH 114) traffic onto the westbound side of the roadway on Monday, May 21. This switch will allow crews to begin work to rebuild the University Avenue intersection. This project will cause delays where part of both the east and westbound 19th Street traffic is reduced to one lane, due to some demolition work. Motorists will still have a dedicated left-turn lane in each direction onto University.

TxDOT will detour traffic around these work areas and motorists are advised to follow the detour signs: Eastbound Marsha Sharp (US 82) traffic will be detoured south on Avenue L to 9th Street, then east to Buddy Holly and finally north to re-connect with the MSF. Westbound Marsha Sharp frontage road traffic will be detoured around the work area via south Texas Avenue, 9th Street and Avenue L to re-connect with the freeway.

Motorists are encouraged to allow for added time for delays or find alternate routes.
