Bridge repair project hampered by overnight rain

Posted: Updated:

From Texas Department of Transportation:

Overnight rain has delayed the opening of the eastbound South Loop 289 main lanes at Slide Road bridge. The roadway was reduced to one-lane of traffic to allow work crews to make overnight repairs to the structure's bridge joints.

Traffic on the eastbound S. Loop main lanes will remain one-lane until the repairs can be completed. Crews have also closed the eastbound Spur 327 on-ramp to the Loop main lanes to ease traffic congestion on the Loop. Eastbound Spur 327 traffic will need to take the frontage road to connect with the Loop main lanes.

Work on the Slide Road bridge is part of a $475,000 bridge preventative maintenance project to make repairs to the bridge decks, joints and rails on several Lubbock are roadway structures.
