I-40 Construction Free Memorial Day Weekend

Good news for people traveling on I-40 in Amarillo this Memorial Day weekend, all 6 lanes of I-40 in both directions will be open to traffic.

Paul Braun, a spokesman for TXDOT says construction inside the Amarillo city limits will be postponed because of the large volume of travelers.

Construction is set to resume on Tuesday for the eastbound lanes between Soncy and the I-27 interchange.

The project is expected to be completed by the end of next week.
