2 Major Road Projects Scheduled to Begin in Lubbock
At least 2 major road projects are set to begin in July, 2020. A contractor with the Texas Department of Transportation will begin a road project on the Marsha Sharp Freeway on Monday, July 20.
From 82nd Street to Upland Avenue, the project will mill and pave the Marsha Sharp Freeway mainlanes. Drivers can expect various daytime lane and ramp closures around that area throughout the week.
The project is part of a larger $10.3 million dollar project to resurface the freeway from Loop 289 to Loop 193 in Wolfforth and add an extra auxiliary lane.
Another road project, worth $4.3 million dollars, is scheduled to begin in Lubbock on Monday, July 27th. According to a news release, that work will begin in the Arnett Benson neighborhood, within the boundaries of Clovis Highway and 4th Street from Indiana Avenue and University Avenue.
Work will also take place in the Clapp Park neighborhoods between University and Avenue Q from 34th Street to 50th Street. The project will begin in the northern neighborhoods and work southward.
Subcontractors are already at work trimming low-hanging tree branches to give paving equipment the room they need to work. During the project, city officials are asking residents to avoid parking their vehicles on the street.
