It had been called one of the most dangerous roads in Lubbock County. On Thursday, the Lubbock-Cooper School District said thank you to a County Commissioner for his role in making it safer. "As an appreciation of your work for increasing the safety of the Lubbock Cooper community by facilitating the improvements to Woodrow Road."
Cooper ISD honored Commissioner Bill McCay with an appreciation plaque for his efforts to help improve the safety of Woodrow Road. The road that runs in front of Cooper High School was widened by eight feet.
"I don't know how many of you drive down Woodrow Road, I've done it for 17 years, if you'll notice it's a little wider than it used to be and it's because of this man right here," said Cooper Superintendent Pat Henderson.
"A lot of credit goes to y'all and the cooperation we have here with the administration here and the Lubbock Cooper School Board. The reason this is so important to me, Woodrow Road and Indiana and other roads feeding into this school - it's about our safety," said Commissioner McCay.
McCay says there are more improvements expected in the near future for roads in the county. Including the widening of Indiana Avenue between FM 1585 and Woodrow Road.
