South Loop 289 lane closure near University to open this weekend

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Construction has started at the lane closure on South Loop 289 near University Avenue. Officials say they hope to have all lanes open in the next few days.

According to TxDOT, they closed one lane in mid August when the pavement started to buckle. They recently entered into a contract to make the repairs, and crews started working on the area Wednesday.

TxDOT says they will reopen the lane this weekend, weather permitting.

    A North Korean mid-range ballistic missile test-fire apparently failed Saturday, South Korea and the United States said, the third such flop just this month but a clear message of defiance as a U.S. supercarrier conducts tests in nearby waters.
