AMARILLO, TX (KFDA) - Motorists may want to consider alternate routes as repairs to Gem Lake Road, between Amarillo Boulevard and Palomino Drive, begin on the morning of Monday, March 21. The pavement in the eastbound lane has deteriorated, causing ruts and potholes to form.
To complete the necessary repairs, the center and eastbound lane of Gem Lake Road will be closed to through traffic. Eastbound traffic will be detoured south on Amarillo Boulevard to SW 9th Avenue, east to Avondale Street, then north to return to Gem Lake Road. The westbound lane will remain open. The project is scheduled for completion by 5 p.m. Wednesday, March 30.
The City of Amarillo would like to thank motorist in advance for their patience as the repairs are concluded. For more information call the City of Amarillo's Street department at (806) 378-6815.
