Lubbock County Roads Part of TxDOT Safety Project

The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) is set to begin a $686,700 safety project for the intersection of County Road 7600 (Woodrow Road) and CR 3100 (Posey Road).

The project is part of TxDOT's 2006 Safety Program which makes funds available for safety projects on both on-system, or state maintained roadways, and off-system roadways, said Mike Stroope, P.E., TxDOT project engineer.

"The project will widen the existing lanes on Woodrow and Posey Roads, as well as add shoulders to the roadways and left-turning lanes on Woodrow Road," Stroope said. "The placement of advance stop warning signs and 48-inch stop signs at the intersection are also part of the safety improvements. When the project is completed, the intersection will have a four-way stop condition."

Motorists traveling through the intersection over the next few months can expect road closures, detours and traffic may be temporarily reduced to one lane in each direction, with flaggers present, as the intersection is reconstructed.

"Motorists can also expect Posey Road to be closed north of Woodrow in the first phase of the project and closed south of Woodrow in the second phase, and a reduction in the speed limit through the construction area. So we are encouraging drivers to pay close attention to all construction warning signs and be attentive to changing traffic patterns," Stroope added.

TxDOT contractor Amarillo Road will began setting barricades on Monday, Jan. 19. The project is expected to complete in early May.
