Road construction on North Loop begins Monday

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

A new roadway project is in the works in Northwest Lubbock. Starting Monday, TxDOT will begin to widen North Loop 289, from Slide to one mile east of Quaker.

This will change the four lanes into a six-lane freeway.

Motorists traveling through the construction zone will see speed limits decreased by 10 mph and are asked to drive with caution.

The project is expected to be finished by February of 2015.
