Indiana Avenue through the Texas Tech Campus is now closed.
Crews closed the road as part of the Texas Tech Parkway Project. When completed, the Parkway will start at the North Loop at Quaker and run through campus. The new parkway will proved faster access through Tech. The current speed on Indiana through campus is 20 miles an hour.
"The purpose of this was to divert traffic from the main part of campus to somewhere else, to facilitate traffic flow," said Penny Mason, TxDOT Public Information Officer.
Workers hope to finish this phase of construction by August. Crews estimate it will take until the Spring of 2005 to complete the entire parkway.
