Almost every bridge on I-40 through Amarillo seems to be under construction. The latest is the I-40 & Bell interchange which is proving to cause a traffic nightmare. With the 2 weekend closures of I-40, we are seeing traffic using the frontage roads and locals are clamoring to find ways to avoid that area. Couple that with the permanent closure of Bell Street until November, and we have a real mess.
This past weekend, it took me a record long time to get down 34th Avenue across town and good luck if you tried to go anywhere on Coulter. Turns out, I am not the only one that is getting frustrated. Here is what some of our fellow Amarilloans had to say on Twitter:
I didn't realize that Amarillo had a local holiday called drive like shit day.
