We all know there is a lot of construction around town over the past few months, Amarillo has seemed like the orange cone capital of the world.

Construction doesn't really bother me. It typically doesn't inconvenience me too much and I love driving on smooth new roads. After a week of unseasonably wet conditions and no end in sight, the City has found themselves in quite the pickle trying to keep all their projects on schedule.

Drainage is not the best around town, so for many projects are underwater and been halted until further notice. The city is trying to play it by ear as much as they can to keep the roads well maintained however they are currently more concerned for peoples safety. If you see standing water anywhere in town just turn around.

If you want to stay up to date on a construction project near you, the city will be giving updates every ten minutes on www.drivetexas.org as the rain continues.
