As we get ready to start a new work week, here's a look at some area lane closures to make your commute through Amarillo easier this week.
Motorists should expect overnight road closures along the I-27/I-40 interchange on Tuesday and Wednesday, Nov. 8 & 9. This will provide the project contractor the space needed to accommodate equipment and safely place panels for the new interchange direct connector. The eastbound I-40 ramp connecting to southbound I-27 will close to traffic beginning at 7 p.m. I-40 traffic wanting to access southbound I-27 will be detoured north around the work zone into downtown Amarillo to reconnect with I-27. The ramp closure and traffic detour are anticipated to remain in place until 7 a.m. both nights. No daytime ramp closures are planned during the operation.
The inside east and westbound left lanes along I-40, between Nelson Street and I-27, will be closed throughout November to allow crews to safely make shoulder repairs.
The right east and westbound lanes of I-40 will be closed at Eastern Street and Coulter Street to place erosion control mats.
Various lane closures are scheduled for I-40 east and westbound from Hope Road to the Oldham County line for cable barrier repair.
TxDOT reminds drivers to slow down in work zones.
All projects are subject to change because of weather, emergency work and other unexpected events.
