Lubbock City Council Rules Toledo Avenue Will Open

Thursday the Lubbock City Council decided to reverse a decision it made four months ago, and that is to re-open Toledo Avenue.

More than a dozen people voiced their opinions to the council. Those who supported re-opening the street called the closure a safety concern and those against re-opening Toledo claim it will protect property values once the Marsha Sharp Freeway is built.

This is the second attempt to re-open Toledo. Soho Grill Restaurant owners say the closure forced them to shut down. "My partner and myself came in front of City Council again two months ago we were shut down about it. I'm happy for the residents of the people who worked it out in their favor, " said Billy Rizzo.

The city shut down Toledo back in July due to a petition formed by 100 residents of the area, but Toledo will open again in six weeks.
