Amarillo is constantly growing and the city has approved some funds to expand West Amarillo.

The Amarillo City Council has voted to approve $300,000 for TxDot to expand the west side of the city.

It's part of TxDot trying to expand FM 2590 through Loop 335 and past I-40.  The entire project is expected to cost more than $3 million dollars.

Local governments are expected to put in 10% of the project cost and that is what the Amarillo City Council approved.  It is up to TxDot to secure the remaining funds need for the project.

There is no date set for completion of the project.
