Commissioners planning next steps for County Roads

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

County Commissioners are looking ahead at the next steps for County Roads. Woodrow Rd. is right on track in becoming the city's newest project. 

Commissioners will meet Tuesday to look at what still needs to be done in the design and construction of Woodrow Rd. 

"As we go forward, we want to make sure that the design is adequate and make sure that the construction material that we're using, all of that is adequate to serve the people of south Lubbock," Lubbock County Judge Curtis Parrish said. 

So far, commissioners are looking into the north and south roads that feed into Woodrow Rd., Loop 88 and 114th Street. 

"You can make good east, west roads but if your north, south feeder roads are not adequate, then you're going to cause bottlenecks at those intersections," Judge Parrish said. 

Additionally, commissioners are focusing on six different roads throughout Lubbock.

"We are looking at construction all over the county. This bond election wasn't just for one road," Judge Parrish said. "This was for projects all over the county, and so we'll be getting updates on all of those projects."

The redevelopment of these roads is intended to keep up with Lubbock's growth over the next several years. 

"The two best times to plant a tree are 20 years ago and today. We're planting trees today," Judge Parrish said. "We're going to make sure that the roads that we are building now will be adequate and will serve the people of Lubbock for the next decades."

The public hearing starts at 1 p.m. on the 5th floor of the courthouse.
