LUBBOCK - TxDOT is scheduled to close the westbound US 62/82 (Marsha Sharp Freeway) frontage road intersection at Upland Avenue to traffic after the morning rush hour beginning tomorrow, March 21. The closure will allow crews to safely rebuild the westbound Marsha Sharp Freeway (MSF) frontage road intersection.
The westbound frontage road will be closed to thru-traffic, but drivers will still have access to southbound Upland. A temporary on-ramp to westbound MSF will be opened to give the westbound frontage road motorists access to the freeway mainlanes.
All southbound Upland traffic, north of US 62, will be detoured around the intersection to Alcove Avenue. Northbound Upland traffic will not be allowed to travel under the bridge and will be detoured to the eastbound frontage road.
Both north- and southbound Upland Avenue drivers are urged to find an alternate route around the work area. The intersection is expected to remain closed for the next month. The closure and work will take place weather permitting.
