LUBBOCK, Texas (NEWS RELEASE) — The following is a news release from TxDOT:
Starting Thursday, June 10, motorists traveling west and north Loop 289 should anticipate various on-ramp, exit-ramp and mainlane closures as Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) contractor Barricades Unlimited makes repairs to the roadway’s crash attenuator guardrail.
