LUBBOCK — The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) has closed the northbound Loop 289 bridge, at US 84 and Martin Luther King Boulevard, to traffic.

The bridge was closed to traffic in the interest of safety to the traveling public after a routine bridge inspection revealed damage to one bridge beam.

Northbound Loop 289 traffic is being detoured onto the frontage road. Drivers can expect delays.

Motorists should anticipate the closure to remain in place several days until bridge experts can thoroughly inspect the structure.

The southbound Loop 289 bridge is open to traffic.
