LUBBOCK – Beginning Thursday, Sept. 5, the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) will temporarily convert the FM 179/50th Street intersection to an all-way stop condition during construction. The temporary traffic condition will allow crews to safely continue work to widen FM 179 from a two-lane to a five-lane roadway.

Message boards have been place to notify motorists of the new traffic conditions. Drivers are reminded that speed limits have been lowered through the active work zone and are encouraged to find alternate routes around the construction area.
