Local News

AMARILLO, Texas (KAMR/KCIT) — The City of Amarillo and the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) are working together to create safety improvements at the intersection of Western St. and Hollywood Rd.

According to The City of Amarillo, starting Aug. 6, four-way stop signs and overhead flashing red light indicators will be activated at the intersection.

The intersection was converted from a signalized intersection to a two-way stop following construction of the intersection overpass by TxDOT. 

Due to growth in this area and more traffic, a study was done in 2019 to determine if a four-way stop was needed for safety enhancements. The study found the intersection met all requirements for a four-way stop plus the addition of overhead flashing signals.

According to the City of Amarillo, on Aug. 6, the intersection will have stop signs and stop bars for east and west traffic on frontage roads. There will also be stop signs, stop bars, and overhead flashing red beacons for north and south traffic.
