It sounds like they are setting up microwave links. This would be used to setup a Wide Area Network for computer systems. I would imagine the radios operate on either the unlicensed 900 MHz, 2.4 GHz or the 5.1 GHz band. They were pointing the antennas toward Metro Tower which indicates that they have a digipeater setup there.
I know that the antennas you see mounted to traffic lights are pointed to a tower near the fire station at 79th and Slide Rd.
A similar system transmits telemetry from lift stations for the water department. And another is setup in North Lubbock to monitor the water level under some fields where waste water is used to irrigate crops.
