LUBBOCK, TX -- Lubbock will consider more projects to improve North University Avenue on Thursday. The City Council will be asked to spend $584,562 with the federal government matching the money and almost doubling the amount available. If approved, the Texas Department of Transportation will partner with the city.

The City Council agenda for Thursday says, “This project provides for the construction of decorative sidewalk, lighting improvements and benches on North University from U.S. 82 (Marsha Sharp Freeway) to Amherst Street in Lubbock.”

Ultimately the goal is to develop North University Avenue “as a modern business district with the business facade colors, symbols, landscape, graphics, flags, and entry gateways reflecting an international Hispanic influence.”
