Radioactive Waste to Travel Through Lubbock

In a matter of days, radioactive waste will make its way through Lubbock. The first round of radioactive waste shipments left a former government plant in Ohio Monday. The shipments are tons of Cold-War era uranium byproduct waste.

It will enter Texas on I-40 and travel through Amarillo and Lubbock en route to Andrews, just north of Odessa. That's where the waste will be stored.

The route was chosen for travel time, distance and population to minimize risk but a spokesman for the project says the waste does not pose a danger to people.
