The Lubbock Business Park Progress Rolls On

Phase one of The Lubbock Business Park is expected to be completed in October. And with such a fast approaching date, much of the 586 acre area is a flurry of activity. 

Phase one is the 400,000 square foot O'Rielly Auto Part Distribution Center and onsite retail store. That's going to open in October and eventually employ 400 Lubbockites, but the development doesn't stop there. Not too long after that opens a 61,000 square foot WesTx Packaging Plant will open, and that will employ another 100 Lubbockites.

Then, just north of the O'Rielly plant, a $45 million Department of Public Safety campus will be built. Construction on that will begin in March of next year and when done it will be the DPS regional headquarters.

So far, LEDA, or The Lubbock Economic Development Alliance has funded $16 million of the $54 million needed for the infrastructure, the roads and utilities. They'll spend that $54 million over 25 years but LEDA says, if the price of building supplies continues to go up it could cost much more than the $54 million.

NewsChannel 11 will continue to follow this project in the weeks, months and years to come to bring you all the updates.

    Trump's demand puts further pressure on the Justice Department, which later Sunday asked its watchdog to expand an existing probe of FBI actions, as the White House combats the threat posed by special counsel Robert Mueller's ongoing investigation.
