Toledo at Brownfield: Noise vs. Convenience

A controversial Lubbock intersection is back in the spotlight: Toledo Avenue at the Brownfield Highway.

The much debated and now closed intersection could soon be re-opened. In August, the intersection was closed due to noise concerns from the Marsha Sharp Freeway Project.

Tuesday, during a meeting of the Citizens Traffic Commission, residents wanting to re-open Toledo presented a petition with around 280 signatures. In the end, the commission voted six to zero for a motion to re-open the avenue.

"Democracy prevailed," said City Traffic Engineer, Jere Hart. "The majority of people wanted it re-opened, now this will be the last time that issue gets a chance to be decided."

The motion will be heard at the next Lubbock city council meeting on Thursday. And there is still time to voice your opinion before commissioners make their final decision. A public hearing will be held at 11am on Thursday.
