Lubbock County announces two road improvements with the Better, Safer Roads Program

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

Press release from Lubbock County: 

Lubbock County will improve CR 2900 from FM 40 to CR 6500 from gravel to a paved surface in Precinct 3. Work is scheduled to being on Oct. 28 and completed in the Spring of 2020. Affected property owners will be notified of the project schedule and details. Lubbock County forces will complete this project.

"CR 2900 is just the first of many country roads in Precinct 3 that will be improved because of the 2019 Better, Safer Roads Program," Pct. 3 Commissioner Gilbert A. Flores said. "I am glad that the citizens of Lubbock County agree with the need for road improvements throughout the county, especially in Precinct 3. The main concern for all Lubbock County Commissioners is the safety of the citizens traveling on our county roads."

Work has begun on the advanced planning and design portion of Woodrow Road from Slide Road to Lubbock-Cooper High School. Lubbock County retained the services of Kimley-Horn and Associates of Lubbock to complete the design of a road that can handle the high volume of traffic that continues to increase daily. Once completed, Woodrow Road will be widened from a two land road to a five land urban facility.

In 2018, Lubbock County was successful in obtaining $2.6 million in federal funding from the Lubbock Metropolitan Planning Organization for the Woodrow Road project.

"Woodrow Road is one of the most dangerous and congested country roads in our county. But more importantly a significant portion of the traffic on Woodrow Road are young drivers driving to and from Lubbock-Cooper High School," Pct. 1 Commissioner Bill McCay said. "It is imperative that we widen this road, not only for the quality of life for those who travel it daily, but for the safety of our citizens."

The Lubbock County Better, Safer Road Program passed earlier this year authorizes the county to issue up to $99.6 million for county wide roadway improvements. The initial $5 million in bond proceeds were received in Sept. 2019.
