Area lane closures and road construction delays

AMARILLO, TX (KFDA) -

As we get ready to start a new work week, here's a look at some area lane closures that could cause you some delays. 

  • Beginning Oct. 31 and continuing throughout the week, overnight I-40 lane closures to set safety barrier are scheduled to begin at 8 p.m. (each night). Eastbound I-40 barriers will be set overnight on Oct. 31 and Nov. 1. Westbound traffic barriers will be placed Nov. 2 and Nov. 3. The lanes will reopen to traffic by 6 a.m. each morning. 
     
  • Beginning Nov. 1, the inside east- and westbound left lanes along I-40, between Nelson Street and I-27, will be closed throughout the month of November to allow crews to safely make shoulder repairs.

Ongoing construction projects:

  • I-40 project to completely rebuild the bridges located at the Ross Osage Drive and Arthur Avenue intersections. Traffic will be reduced to two lanes in each direction through the duration of construction, with the possibility of traffic being reduced to one-lane in each direction for brief periods and/or overnight.

  • On LP 335, between I-27 and Washington, traffic is reduced to one lane in each direction, 4-way stop at Georgia Street and temporary signals in place at Western Street.  Expect lane diversions and traffic delays.
