Marsha Sharp Fwy​LUBBOCK – Commuters can again drive 65 mph on the Marsha Sharp Freeway and now have more room to do so.​

Construction to widen Marsha Sharp Fwy. from four lanes to six was completed after more than a year in the works.

The $17.3 million project widened six miles of the cross-town freeway, between Ave. L and W. Loop 289.

The project also updated streetlights on the stretch of the freeway.

Lubbock Mayor Dan Pope said area leaders have done a good job of planning for Lubbock’s future and growth-related needs.

“One of the things that has helped guide our growth is infrastructure . . . It takes planning and we’ve got people doing their best to stay ahead of growth and to prepare Lubbock to continue to grow.”​
