City Approves Widening of Milwaukee Avenue

In that project, seven lanes will be constructed to enable traffic to flow more efficiently while the East-West freeway is being built over the next several years.

"The development is moving that way and there are a number of private developments projects for commercial and residential developments that are close to being started in that whole corridor and if you build the street first where you don't have to work around all the existing houses, buildings and so forth you could pave the street faster and much cheaper," says Lubbock City Councilman, Tom Martin.

Construction is expected to begin this fall and is scheduled to be completed by next summer.
