The City of Lubbock has a few construction work projects planed for the next few weeks.

Thursday (Mar 29), the City of Lubbock began construction on a sewer line along 1st Street. During the construction, 1st Street will be closed between University Avenue and Waco Avenue. Work is expected to be completed by the end of next week.

Beginning on Monday (Apr 2), the City of Lubbock will begin an improvement project on Upland Avenue. Work will consist of asphalt paving from 50th Street to 66th Street. Crews are beginning with the closure of 50th Street to 59th Street. Drivers should expect land closures and detours. The work is expected to take 4 to 6 weeks to complete.

The City of Lubbock has announced that a portion of 66th Street is to be designated for one-way traffic. 66th Street between the Marsha Sharp Freeway and Santa Fe Drive will be only for eastbound traffic. Westbound traffic will need to use the reconstructed intersection at Upland Avenue and the Marsha Sharp Freeway to access Santa Fe Drive. The change will occur next Tuesday (Apr 3), with traffic signs being erected to show drivers the change.

Next week, TxDOT is scheduled to begin replacing guide signs along the I-27 corridor in Swisher, Hale, and Lubbock Counties. Drivers should expect I-27 shoulder, frontage road, and short-term exit closures. Work is expected to be completed in late-July.
