Overnight Loop 88 closure planned for next week

Closure also planned for University Avenue

June 2, 2023

LUBBOCK –Loop 88 and University Avenue drivers can expect two nights of road closures next week as the Texas Department of Transportation continues drainage work on the freeway project. Both closures will take place from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m.

On Monday, June 5, crews will close Loop 88 (FM 1585/130th Street), just west of University Avenue, to traffic. Then on Tuesday night, June 6, University Avenue north of Loop 88, will be closed.

Loop 88 and University Avenue traffic will need to find an alternate route around the work zone.

The work will take place weather permitting and is part of a $154.8 million project to convert FM 1585 from a rural, two-lane roadway into Loop 88, a six-lane freeway with frontage roads, bridges, and ramps.
