If you're traveling to Lubbock, you may end up getting re-routed, all because of the recent rains.

Highway 87 between Lamesa and Tahoka has been shut down.

It you're headed up to Lubbock, you'll be detoured through Brownfield on Highway 137.

Crews have pumped 9 million gallons of water off the highway.

Flooding has turned the road into a river and it looks like there's no relief in sight.
