Amarillo Area Road Construction: Know Before You Go
The road construction around Amarillo seems never ending. Major projects continue along I-40, I-27 at Hollywood, and the new western part of the loop. Each week, the Texas Department of Transportation releases their list of upcoming work zones and areas to avoid. This coming week, the list is really short. Along with ongoing projects, here are the new projects for the upcoming week:
- On Monday Aug. 24, the right lane of State Loop (SL) 335 westbound will be closed between Irwin Road and US 87 for rut repair.
- On Tuesday and Wednesday, Aug. 25 and 26, crews will be working in front of Tyson Foods on the shoulder of FM 1912 (Masterson Road) reshaping the ditch.
- Expect various lane closures along the I-27 frontage roads from Western Street to 26th Avenue to clean and service sidewalks and drains.
- On I-27, watch for left lane closures in both directions for maintenance of drains and the center median.
Along with these above areas, major work continues along I-40 on the eastern side of town. Watch for lane shifts and workers on site. All work and projects are subject to change due to weather conditions. Stay tuned on the air for updates and follow TxDOT on Twitter.
