Tuesday, the Lubbock Citizens Traffic Commission voted to shut down the school zone at 82nd Street and Albany. Due to the volume of traffic, the commission prefers that students cross at the intersection, rather than at the crosswalk in the middle of the street. The proposal now goes to the Lubbock City Council for approval.
Also Tuesday, the Lubbock Citizens Traffic Commission voted to change the speed limit of Spur 331, Southeast Drive. The stretch of road affected runs between East Loop 289 and the Slaton Highway. If approved by the Lubbock City Council and TxDOT, the speed limit will increase from 55mph to 65mph.
