Some Lubbock roadways getting smarter thanks to a $1.4 project. TxDOT is adding 11 dynamic message boards and five cameras in Lubbock county.
Five DMS boards will go along Marsha Sharp Freeway, four along I-27, one along South Loop 289, and the last one along US 84 in Slaton. These message boards will inform drivers of weather and roadway conditions or possible traffic congestion as well as send out Amber and Silver alerts.
The five traffic cameras will be placed along I-27.
Work begins July 14 causing a few lane and ramp closures. Completion is expected for spring 2016.
