Lubbock City Council Approves 34th Street Reconstruction Extension

Cole Shooter, KFYO.com

At their meeting Thursday morning, the Lubbock City Council approved a resolution authorizing the purchase of video detection equipment for the Marsha Sharp Freeway project.

Under the 2009 agreement between the City of Lubbock and TxDOT, the City will purchase and install the traffic signal equipment as part of the freeway Phase 4 project, and TxDOT will reimburse the City for the equipment and construction.

The video detection equipment is used to identify the presence of vehicles at the signalized intersections. The more-than $43,000 purchase will be made from Paradigm Traffic Systems of Fort Worth.

The Council also approved the second reading of an ordinance which will extend the reconstruction of a Lubbock street further west.

The original scope of the 34th Street reconstruction project was from Indiana Avenue to Avenue Q, but the Council has given final approval to the ordinance which will allow for reconstruction along 34th Street to extend to Quaker Avenue, or as far as funds from the voter-approved $20.725 million bond will allow.

These items were approved 6-0 by the Council, District 6 Councilman Jim Gilbreath absent.
