County to consider 4-way stop at University & Woodrow Rd

By James Clark - email

LUBBOCK COUNTY, TX (KCBD) - Safety concerns prompt discussion of a possible four-way stop at South University Avenue and Woodrow Road.  County Commissioners will not make a final decision on Monday but instead they might set a public hearing on the issue.

Meanwhile, Lubbock County still suffers the ill effects of Hurricane Alex.  County Commissioners toured the road Monday and County Commissioner Bill McCay believes, "A four way stop sign will make it a safer intersection as well as a more convenient intersection in that you wont have to sit and wait for long periods of time as the heavier traffic is going east west it will smooth the traffic flow."

 Those roads include on the tour Monday:

  • North County Road 3240 North of Idalou,
  • North County Road 1630 at County Road 6100,
  • County Road 7000 at County Road 1500,
  • County Road 1800 at Woodrow Road
  • and the Horseshoe Bend Road.

All them were damaged on July 3rd or the days that followed because of massive flooding from remnants of Hurricane Alex.
