City plans Frankford Ave. reconstruction project


Another major roadway in southwest Lubbock will soon get a facelift.

Late Wednesday afternoon the city requested bids for the reconstruction of a portion of Frankford Avenue.

The project is from 98th to 114th.

It could cost as much as $5.9 million.

Bids are due on February 29th and the project is supposed to be done within a year or so.

When it's done, it will be three lanes in each direction plus a turning lane in the middle.

The money comes from Lubbock's Gateway Streets Project fund.

Companies like Xcel, Suddenlink, NTS and others pay a franchise fee to the city in order to have their utility lines in the city's "right of way" areas, which is the gateway funding source.
