During their July commission meeting held last week, the Texas Transportation Commission (TTC) approved a project for US 87 in Lubbock County as part of the agency's continued commitment to improve and maintain a safe transportation system.

Last week's approval will allow the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) to move ahead with construction on the $10,259,830 project that is expected to improve safety at the US 87 and CR 7600 (Woodrow Row) intersection. The state-funded project will build bridges on US 87 at Woodrow Road.

Allen Butler, of Ransom Canyon, is the project contractor.
