Traffic changes planned for FM 40/FM 400 intersection
LUBBOCK – On Wednesday, March 27, the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) will convert the intersection of FM 40 and FM 400, in eastern Lubbock County, from a two-way stop to an all-way stop condition.
Stop conditions will be added to FM 40, with road crews installing 48” stop signs on FM 40. The signs will be mounted on sign posts with flashing beacons. Advance stop-ahead signs will also be added to alert motorists of the new stop conditions.
“TxDOT is converting the intersection to an all-way stop after a recently completed traffic study revealed an equal amount of traffic on both roads,” said Jeremy Dearing, P.E., TxDOT Lubbock District Director of Transportation Operations. “The traffic changes made, including adding illumination to the intersection, are expected to improve safety.”
Message boards, notifying the public of the upcoming new traffic conditions at the intersection, will be in place, Dearing noted.
