40th Street Becomes 40st Street in Lubbock Mix Up

40th Street at Avenue A has a sign bearing the name "40st Street"

By Christian Henson

LUBBOCK, TX -- 40th Street at Avenue A on the east side of Lubbock has a street sign calling it 40st Street.

KAMC News gave a random sampling of people in Lubbock a test to see if they could name streets correctly with their -st, -nd, -rd, and -th endings i.e 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th.

They all named the number 40 ending in the traditional -th.

At this time there is no word on if the City of Lubbock plans to replace the sign.
