Dark section of Quaker Ave. to get new street lights

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

A one-mile portion of North Quaker Avenue will soon be a little brighter at night.  The City of Lubbock is inviting contractors between now and September 18 to bid on a street light project along North Quaker between the North Loop and Clovis Highway.  The city's capital projects budget sets aside up to $250,000 for North Quaker illumination.  Once a contractor is chosen the project has a 60 day deadline. 

In a separate but related note, last year the city set aside $3.6 million to be used alongside TxDOT funding for a new interchange at North Quaker and North Loop 289.  The project is estimated to be $29 million.
