AMARILLO, TX (KFDA) - As the new week begins, TxDOT has some new lane closures that area motorists should be aware of:
Various parts of the I-40 frontage roads from the Oldham County line to Bushland will be closed Wednesday through Friday for seal coat operations.
The left and center lanes on I-40 eastbound from Whitaker Road to Pullman Road and various lanes of I-27 northbound and southbound between 45th Avenue and Hillside Road will be closed for mill and fill operations.
Due to Saturday's heat advisory, the installation of new reflective buttons on the asphalt along the I-27 main lanes from Hillside Road to Canyon has been postponed until further notice.
