LUBBOCK, TX (PRESS RELEASE) - The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) will fully activate the traffic signals at the US 82 (Parkway Drive) and Zenith Avenue intersection on Monday, July 31.
The signal is currently in a flashing-red, all-stop condition and will continue to flash-red throughout the weekend. Message boards have been placed to notify motorists of the upcoming signal changes occurring on Monday.
The new traffic signals are part of a $6.4 million project that made traffic and pedestrian safety improvements to the roadway, including removing the frontage roads along the south side of Parkway Drive, between MLK and Cherry Avenue, replacing the raised medians with a two-way left turn-lane, adding/upgrading pedestrian crossings and the addition of sidewalks.
Work will take place weather permitting.
