TxDOT plans to construct Loop 88 by converting the existing rural roadways to an access-controlled six-lane divided freeway with frontage roads and ramps. Interchanges will be developed at designated cross streets. Loop 88 Segments 1 and 2 project limits are from US 84 to US 62/82, a length of approximately 16.05 miles in Lubbock and Lubbock County. Loop 88 Segment 4 project limits are from US 87 to US 84, a length of approximately 8.8 miles in Lubbock County. The existing farm-to-market roadways are two-lane rural roadways approximately 80- to 120-feet wide and the county roadways are unimproved dirt roads approximately 20- to 24-feet wide. The proposed project is an added capacity roadway project with a proposed right-of-way (ROW) width of 400-feet.
