Stop at Woodrow & University starts Monday

By James Clark - email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Lubbock motorists need to be careful of a big change Monday at one busy intersection.  On Monday Lubbock County will install a 4-way stop at the intersection Woodrow Road at the South University Avenue.  Up until now it was a 2-way stop with traffic on Woodrow having the right-of-way.  

Some have asked Lubbock County officials why a four-way stop had not been put up before now.  The answer is that state rules & regulations did not allow for it until just recently. 

County Commissioner Bill McCay says, "A traffic engineering study ... shows that the intersection of Woodrow Road and CR2200 (South University Avenue) meets the warrants specified in the Texas Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices."

The cost of the 4-way stop at Woodrow & University is $7,666.86.   Most of that amount, $5,143, was for the engineering study.
