City of Lubbock Pipeline Maintenance crews have repaired the 16" water line at 82nd and Slide, and crews are now preparing the area for concrete work.
Traffic currently remains restricted, but crews hope Friday's work will allow for traffic controls to be removed tomorrow afternoon and provide temporary traffic relief until permanent repairs can be made next week.
The first part of next week, to minimize the impact to the traveling public, the Street Department will begin making repairs to the concrete paving in phases. This will allow us to keep as many lanes open during the repair process as possible. When the repairs take place, it will impact the eastbound lanes on 82nd St.
This area is congested with restricted traffic flow and it is recommended drivers avoid the area if possible. Sorry for any inconvenience this has caused.
