Well, It seems the more things change the more they stay the same here in the Yellow City. Road Construction just seems to be never ending although we are starting to see some of the results from the summer maintenance program around town like here on 34th between Bell and Coulter where there's nice new asphalt and Bell itself reopened at I-40. Where one headache ends another begins.

This time the headache and the brake tapping will becoming to the medical district and one of the busier streets in town with Western Blvd. Let's break it down by street.

Medical Park

Michael J. Rivera, Townsquare Media

The work being done in the medical district runs right along BSA Hospital's campus on Wallace Boulevard between Research Street and Hagy Boulevard which will also make getting into Medi Park a little more of a challenge. Hagy Boulevard is also getting some major league work done as well from where it intersects Wallace Boulevard through Amarillo Boulevard. On the other side of the road Port Lane will also get work through Wolflin Avenue.  Folks with the city are also working to make sure that first responders and those with emergencies will still continue to have full access to the hospital at all times.

Western Street

You're also going to find a sea of traffic cones and barriers along Western Street between Southwest 34th (opposite Juliet) though 49th street which also includes the 45th street intersection. There is a time frame for a year on the 10 million dollar project and hopefully they can be done sooner.

Amarillo Landmarks: Negative Yelp Reviews

Yelp can be a strange and angry place. That's what I found out recently when I decided to sort the reviews by "lowest rating" first.

I was okay with the people upset over bad service and what not. But I came across a few reviews that, for lack of a better word, left me speechless in their scathing negative reviews on some of Amarillo's most iconic places. Prepare your self for plenty of head shaking and "I dunno" shrugs.

These Might Be the Most Dangerous Intersections in Amarillo

Traffic stinks.

These intersections stink harder.

Don't hesitate to sound off if we missed any. We're happy to add more Amarillo collision hotspots to this list of shame.
