Business owners frustrated, but optimistic about 34th Street construction

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

The construction along 34th Street continues as business owners look for ways to keep their customers coming back.

A 2-mile stretch of roadway from Indiana to Avenue Q is undergoing a major overhaul, and has been since March.

Where there were potholes, cracks and distressed roadway, there are now orange cones and much of the roadway is down to just two lanes.

The owner of Jester Art Supply on 34th says the adjustment to the construction hasn't been easy - but he knows it comes with a big payoff.

"You know, dirt flying up from cars and stuff like that. But it's going to be so nice. Wait until they see the rest of it with the sidewalks. It's going to be beautiful," James Jester said.

The construction will continue in phases along 34th Street, to keep congestion down to a minimum.
