City out for bids on Fire Station 16

By James Clark email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Lubbock has gone out for bids on a brand new fire station at 114th and Quaker.  Bids are due in less than two weeks on a fire station that's big enough to hold three fire trucks.  Lubbock's Fire Station #17 officially opened in October of 2009, but there is no Fire Station 16; not yet. 

Station 17, near 63rd and Indiana Avenue was considered a priority for response times in South-Central Lubbock.  Station 16 was approved by voters in the November 2009 bond election, at a cost of roughly $2.5 million. 

On that same ballot were Station 18 at 66th Street and Oakridge Avenue, and Station 19 at 104th Street and Milwaukee Avenue, neither of which has not yet gone out for construction bids.
