LUBBOCK – Beginning next week, motorists traveling I-27 in Lubbock County can expect various mainlane closures, as the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) begins work on a project to make more than $1.3 million in repairs to the roadway, from Lubbock to the city of New Deal.
The repair work is scheduled to begin Monday, Feb. 4, on the northbound mainlanes, between 82nd Street and Municipal Drive. Project contractor O. Trevino Construction, LCC., of Roanoke, Texas, will work their way north to New Deal. Once work on the northbound lanes is completed, crews will begin work on the southbound lanes.
Drivers can expect single and double lane closures, as well as, multiple-nighttime lane closures (to allow the concrete to set) throughout the duration of the project. Motorists should expect delays and are asked to slow down and drive with caution through the work zone for their safety and the safety of the workers.
Work is expected to continue through June 2019, and will take place weather permitting.
