Over the next 12 months, TxDOT crews will be making improvements to several bridges in Lubbock and Hale counties.

According to a TxDOT release, motorists traveling on I-27 starting on Monday, March 25th should anticipate traffic being reduced to 1 lane and other main lane closures as rehab work takes place on the bridges at Loop 369 and FM 54 on Abernathy's Main Street.

Speed limits will be reduced in the work zone by 10 mph.

Mike Wittie, TxDot's Lubbock Area engineer said "The lane closures will give work crews the space needed to make repairs to bridge decks, joints, rails and place a new road surface on the bridge structures."
