AMARILLO, TX (KFDA) -
When it comes to the Loop project, Mayor Paul Harpole isn't hiding the fact there's a lot to be done.
"We're talking about a 43 mile Loop that we must have to move traffic through this region, not just Amarillo," said Mayor Harpole. "So, it is critical to the growth of our city."
It's going to take awhile but TxDOT just made it a bit easier.
"We hoped, we begged, we pleaded, we prodded, we got it," said Harpole.
The City of Amarillo recently received $65 Million in TxDOT money to extend the Loop. Mayor Harpole says without this money it would have taken another 30 years to expand Loop 335.
