LUBBOCK, Texas (NEWS RELEASE) – The following is a news release from Texas Tech University:
On September 7, 2019 the Texas Tech University Student Government Association will host Barricading Broadway in conjunction with the City of Lubbock. The streets of Broadway and Avenue X are closed to traffic between 7 P.M. and 1:30 A.M.

“We are grateful for the opportunity to work with the City of Lubbock on this project,” said David Rivero, Texas Tech Student Body President. “This project has been in the works for a while and we are excited to finally put our plan into action.”
Cars within the barricaded area will be able to leave Broadway and exit at any time. However, no cars will be able to enter the barricade once the street is closed. Pedestrians will not be allowed to set up any type of encampment in the barricaded area. Lubbock Police Department will have officers on site to secure, maintain and enforce the barricaded area
