The connector that connects eastbound I-40 to northbound US 87 will be closed starting at 7pm tonight and will remain closed through Saturday.

If you are traveling this area you will be detoured to the turnaround on Ross Street and then back to westbound I-40 to US 87 and Downtown Amarillo.

The reason for this close is that TxDOT has to make concrete repairs on the road.

Those traveling eastbound I-40 will still be able to access the south I-27 frontage road.

Work will take place weather permitting and is expected to be completed by Saturday evening.
