Motorists traveling south on Virginia Street will be rerouted around S.W. 45th Avenue beginning Monday, Aug. 8. The City of Amarillo's contractor, Amarillo Utility Contractors, will remove a broken gate valve related to the 45th Avenue Water Main Improvement project. Work is scheduled for completion by Thursday, Aug. 11.
Those traveling south on Virginia Street towards S.W. 45th Avenue will be detoured northwest on Julie Drive, southwest on Paramount Boulevard, then south on Western Street to return to S.W. 45th Avenue. All other directions of travel through the intersection of S. Virginia Street and S.W. 45th Avenue will remain open as they are unaffected by this project.
The City and its contractor would like to thank motorists for their patience in advance as the work is completed.
