Lane Closures will Slow Down Commutes this Week on I-40 and I-27
When it comes to your routine, you are probably set in your ways. I know I am. If I'm one minute off on the morning routine, it can throw my whole day off. However, when you have a route you take to work it's a part of your routine and when construction pops up on that route it will affect your morning routine. That's what's happening this week. If you travel I-40 or I-27 then you might want to find an alternate travel route due to lane closures or allow for extra time.
Here are the areas you are going to want to avoid this week in your commutes:
Beginning at 12 a.m., on Tuesday, the eastbound I-40 ramp connecting to southbound I-27 will close to traffic overnight. I-40 traffic wanting to access southbound I-27 will be detoured north around the work zone into downtown Amarillo to reconnect with I-27. The ramp will reopen to traffic at 12 p.m. Tuesday.
Lane closures Monday — Thursday on northbound I-27, from 45th Street to the Washington Street bridge for road surface repairs.
Lane closures Monday — Thursday on eastbound I-40, from Western Street to Washington Street for road surface repairs.
I-27 and I-40 interchange, I-27 southbound traffic is reduced to one lane past 26th Avenue overpass.
I-40 and Loop 335 (Soncy Road), expect intermittent closure of east turnaround for retaining wall construction. I-40 main lanes are reduced to one lane in each direction. I-40 frontage roads are reduced to one lane in each direction between Soncy Road and Helium Road.
Loop 335, between I-27 and Washington, traffic is reduced to one lane in each direction, 4-way stop at Georgia Street and temporary signals in place at Western Street. Expect lane diversions and traffic delays.
