AMARILLO, TX (KFDA) - The Texas Department of Transportation has announced that the I-40 westbound off-ramp at Bell street will be closed indefinitely due to an unforeseen utility issue.
Water was filling a hole where a signal crew had been boring for new signal conduits when an unmarked water line was struck.
TxDOT is working with the City of Amarillo to get the frontage road/intersection repaired. Until then, the westbound exit ramp will remain closed with no access to Bell Street.
The westbound frontage road also is closed east of Bell Street at Rogers Street. Southbound Bell Street to the westbound frontage road is open.
If you usually use that exit ramp, you are advised to seek an alternate route.
