Marsha Sharp Freeway frontage road closures scheduled - KCBD NewsChannel 11 Lubbock

Marsha Sharp Freeway frontage road closures scheduled through end of August

Provided by TXDoT

Next week, the eastbound 4th Street connector ramp to the eastbound frontage road of the Marsha Sharp Freeway (MSF) will be closed to traffic and the eastbound MSF frontage road reduced to one lane of traffic. Traffic will be detoured around the area.

The temporary closure and detour will allow for work at Jones AT&T Stadium on the Texas Tech University campus to be performed.

Beginning Monday, August 19, contractor Vaughn Construction will close the connector ramp (connecting eastbound 4th Street traffic to the MSF frontage road) to install the pre-cast concrete columns and arch panels on the exterior facade of the north end zone of Jones AT&T Stadium. Eastbound MSF frontage road traffic will be reduced to one-lane of traffic to give work crews the room needed to perform the work safely.

Motorists using the 4th Street ramp to access University Avenue will be detoured onto the eastbound MSF main lanes where they will be able to take the Avenue Q exit and use the turn-around to connect with University Avenue. Fourth Street motorists are encouraged to use TTU Parkway to connect with the MSF and then go east to connect with University Avenue without additional detour.

The ramp and frontage road closures will continue through Saturday, August 24.

During the week of August 26 through August 31, the 4th Street ramp will remain open to day-time traffic but will be closed during the overnight hours of 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. and traffic detoured.
