The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) is focusing on safety improvements with their upcoming project set to begin on Monday, February 29.

The project will include upgrading sidewalk ramps on University Avenue from 4th St. to Amherst Street in Lubbock.

The purpose of the construction is to upgrade sidewalks to meet standards laid out in the Americans with Disabilities Act.

The $940,883 project will also build sidewalks, and add street lights around the city.

This mainly off-roadway project is set to be completed in June of this year.
