LUBBOCK, TX -- Lubbock will soon spend up to $21 million for a new 51-inch sewer to accommodate population growth in South and Southwest Lubbock. Lubbock has set aside $26.5 million total, with part of it going towards the reconstruction of 98th Street from Avenue P to Highway 87. The new sewer line will go from 98th and P to the intersection of 98th and MLK Boulevard; from there it will go to along MLK to 35th Street; and from there it will go to the Southeast Water Reclamation Plant at 3500 Guava Avenue.
Official records say, “The project … helps alleviate potential sewer overflows.”
The new large-diameter sewer line also allows the city to abandon a temporary lift station at 98th and Avenue P. The city has gone out for bids and once the city council chooses a company it will be a year-long project.
