Council members discuss agreement with TxDOT to start work on Loop 88

LUBBOCK, Texas -

Water and sewage lines will be a big factor in starting work on State Loop 88.

The six lane freeway will connect U.S. 84 from Slaton to Shallowater around west Lubbock. City Council members approved an agreement with TxDOT ahead of construction. 

The agreement will avoid conflicts during the construction process. City staffers and TxDOT agents will be working around infrastructure on 1585 from Memphis to Ave. U.

TxDOT will pay for relocating the pipes and other necessary equipment. 

The project is expected to start in October.
