Photos Prove that Amarillo Has Always Been Under Construction
Amarillo, all of Amarillo is under construction. North, south, east, west, Amarillo is under construction. On all the major streets, Amarillo is under construction. Almost everywhere in Amarillo is under construction.
The construction in Amarillo has been the bane of our existence, we are all looking for a way to avoid the construction, but from what I've found, you can't avoid it, it's everywhere. Has there ever been a time in history, where Amarillo hasn't been under construction? Honestly, probably not, in fact here's proof Amarillo has always been under construction.
This particular picture is near Georgia back in January 1966. All that's missing going south, is Texas Roadhouse, Bubba's 33, Burger King, Roasters, Taco Villa, the Donut Stop, and Wolflin Village. Going north, Toot N Totum, Sharky's and Dyers, and the entire business office with Macaroni Joes, Schlotzsky's and more.
Here's a view of the same area now.
This picture is from June of 1958 and look they are working on I-27. This looks to be near the 34th bridge going over I-27.
Here's a view of that same area now. It's crazy how things change, but are the same.
It's funny how the same construction seems to happen over and over again, here in Amarillo. They are very traveled roads here in our city.
No matter when or where you go in the city, unfortunately, there will always be road construction. At least we know our roads are being fixed. Who knows maybe one day, they will find a way to fix them so they last longer.
