BUFFALO SPRINGS LAKE – Beginning today, Oct. 23, TxDOT will close the Buffalo Springs Lake spillway bridge to all traffic. The closure will allow DRS Construction Inc. of Powderly, Texas, to safely make repairs to the bridge beams.

"The $93,214 rehabilitation project will require the bridge to remain closed to vehicle traffic while repairs are being made," said Michael Wittie, P.E., TxDOT Lubbock Area Engineer and project manager. "Pedestrians are also strongly discouraged from using the bridge during this time."

Work to make the bridge repairs is expected to take four weeks to complete, weather permitting.
