Traffic and the downtown revitalization project

Posted: Updated:

The next step being taken in the revitalization project for downtown Amarillo is focused safety. Downtown Amarillo Inc. held a public meeting to discuss their traffic study findings.

The public meeting for residents and business owners to discuss the downtown traffic and circulation study as well as the wayfinding design.

The study being discussed focused on the impact of the redevelopment in the Civic Center area where the new hotel and ballpark are set to be built.

"It's really important that when you develop downtown, that downtown is also an area that is easy to navigate, it's easy to find parking, to find your way around, find your destinations. And so, although we'll be developing downtown and that's important, we want to make sure that as people come into town, they can get to where they want to get," Melissa Dailey, Downtown Amarillo Inc. executive director says.

Dailey tells us the Downtown Amarillo Inc. board meets Tuesday and can make recommendations from the study findings. Any recommendations proposed on Tuesday would then go before the city commission within a couple of weeks.
