Amarillo, Texas - A major road project begins this week in Randall County.

At least one lane of Park Road 5 in the Palo Duro Canyon will be closed until late spring, when TxDOT finishes the work...  which is aimed at rebuilding part of the road so storm water can drain easier, along with new roadway embankments to help prevent erosion.

At some times, both lanes may be closed, but you should still be able to get into the park's main gate, rim-side cabins and the visitor center.

The price tag for this project is about $722,000.
