AMARILLO, TEXAS - A dangerous situation going east on I-40 is ending, but on the other side, it's just beginning.

Going East towards the bridge at nelson street everything looks take a look at what's in the blind spot --- high speed traffic barreling to an almost stand still as three highway lanes merge down to just one in a short distance.

The Texas Department of Transportation says all the signs and cones are exactly where they're supposed to be according to federal law.

The construction on I-40 East next wrapped up last night.

But a re-paving project going the other way over the same bridge still has a few days lefts -- so be care and slow down.
