AMARILLO, Texas (KFDA) - Motorists around Amarillo have some new lane closures this week.

Watch for mobile herbicide operations throughout the week on I-27 and I-40.

On Wednesday, June 1, the I-27 entrance ramp from 34th Avenue will be closed from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Traffic will detour using the northbound frontage road and northbound entrance ramp at 26th Avenue. This will allow our contractor to safely bore under the interstate for an illumination pole.

I-40 westbound will be closed at Helium Road from 9 a.m. to Noon Wednesday, June 1. This will allow our contractor to remove debris from the roadway. Drivers will take the Helium Road exit to the frontage road and reenter I-40 westbound at the entrance ramp from Helium Road.

On Wednesday, the left and center lanes of I-27 northbound/Fillmore Street going into downtown will be closed at 15th Avenue for concrete repair.

Wednesday, June 1: the right lane of US 87 northbound
