TxDOT hosting public meeting for Loop 88 project

Posted: Updated:

LUBBOCK – The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) is hosting a public meeting for the proposed Loop 88 project on Tuesday, February 20, 2018, at the Lubbock-Cooper Performing Arts Center, 16302 Loop 493, Lubbock, Texas 79423. Displays will be available for viewing beginning at 5:30 p.m. and the public meeting, including a formal presentation, will begin at 6 p.m.

The purpose of the public meeting is to present proposed project information and route locations for Loop 88 segments 1 and 2 (US 84, Shallowater, to US 62/82, Wolfforth) and segment 4 (US 87, in south Lubbock to US 84, Slaton) and receive public comments. The proposed project would construct a six-lane freeway with ramps and frontage roads. Interchanges will be developed at cross streets, US 84, FM 2641 near Shallowater, and at US 84 and CR 7500 near Slaton. The proposed improvements would require additional right-of-way and would result in commercial and residential displacements within the project limits. 

Maps showing the proposed project’s route and design will be displayed at the public meeting and on the TxDOTwebsite. This information will also be available Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. at the TxDOT Lubbock District Office, 135 Slaton Road in Lubbock.

Verbal and written comments are requested and will be received at the public meeting.  Written comments may be submitted for a period of 15 calendar days (until March 7, 2018) following the meeting by mail to District Design Engineer Shelley Harris, P.E. at 135 Slaton Road, Lubbock, TX 79404-5201, or by email to shelley.harris@txdot.gov.

The public meeting will be conducted in English. Persons interested in attending who have special communication needs or needs an interpreter, are encouraged to contact the TxDOT Lubbock District Public Information Office at (806) 748-4472. Requests should be made at least two days prior to the public meeting.

    Mentorship program helps prevent, combat bullying

    While bullying is mainly prevalent in middle school or high school, It is never too early to start addressing it with kids. For nine years, Tomorrow's Leaders has been mentoring a group of fifth graders throughout Lubbock ISD.
