Milwaukee Avenue Expansion Opens

After nine months of construction, drivers can now access a portion of one of Lubbock's largest commercial streets. A ribbon cutting ceremony, Friday, marked the opening of Milwaukee Avenue from Brownfield to 34th street. Now drivers can travel from Brownfield north to 4th street.

Once the project is complete, the 7-lane thoroughfare will connect 4th street to 92nd street. Mayor Pro-Tem Tom Martin believes that will lead to more development in west Lubbock. Martin says, "It's going to develop more than a billion dollars in new construction along the west side of the city of Lubbock and will be a major traffic asset to the people of our city."

The project cost the city and its partners $17.3 million.
