Safety Improvements Scheduled

for Western Street/Hollywood Road Intersection

AMARILLO –The City of Amarillo and the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) are combining to create safety improvements at the intersection of Western Street/Hollywood Road.

Beginning 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 higher traffic volumes, a traffic study was conducted in 2019 to determine if a four-way stop was needed for safety enhancements.  The study indicated the intersection met all requirements for a four-way stop plus the addition of overhead flashing signals.

Beginning Aug. 6, the intersection will have stop signs and stop bars for east/west traffic on frontage roads. In addition, there will be stop signs, stop bars and overhead flashing red beacons for north/south traffic.
