It's a new year and guess what, the construction of Amarillo continues.

This Week's Construction:

  • Watch for crews clearing shrubs and trees around the downtown interchange of Interstates 27 and 40. Various lanes and exits will be closed at times so crews can also begin crack sealing operations.
  • I-40, various lanes of the westbound frontage roads will be closed from Helium Road to the Oldham County line for placement of new pavement markings.

Ongoing projects:
