TxDOT: Avoid I-40 and Coulter St. overpass

AMARILLO, TX (KFDA) - Drivers are asked to avoid the I-40 and Coulter overpass.

The Texas Department of Transportation is working to repair what they are calling a large pothole inside a lane of the overpass.  
     
At this time, repairs are expected to last through Monday.  

Paul Braun with TxDOT says this can be common problem that they expect to see more of throughout the summer. 

"As the rain comes in, and that rain and moisture comes in under the pavement and cracks and whatever, when it gets hot that moisture really starts to heat up and expands. It expands the asphalt and blows out the asphalt and concrete above it. So, we expect this to happen a lot this summer and we will be keeping our eye on it and patrolling for it," he told us. 

Traffic will only be allowed through one lane. Drivers are asked to seek alternative routes.
