A new TxDot program has some Amarilloans worried that higher taxes will be the result.

It’s called ‘Turn Back’.  The proposed program would see TxDot turning over ownership of state-owed roadways that pass through Texas cities and other jurisdictions.

Locally, Route 66 could be affected.  TxDot could turn over maintenance duties to the City of Amarillo for the portion that runs through town.

City officials maintain that if the ‘Turn Back’ happens it would mean higher taxes for residents as well as affecting the quality of the road.
