As the construction, continues on the I-40/I-27, motorists can expect more delays.  As they project continues, you may also need to find alternate routes to make sure you get to your destinations on time.  They will be closing down the I-40/I-27 interchange overnight.

The overnight closures will take place on Monday, September 19th and Tuesday, September 20th.  This will allow the contractor to continue to work on the interchange direct connector.

Be aware that the east bound I-40 ramp connecting to I-27 southbound will be closed starting at 7pm each night.  Traffic on I-40 needing access to southbound I-27 will be detoured into downtown Amarillo to reconnect with I-27.

The southbound frontage roads on I-27 across from the connector, from south Polk to 26th will also be closed.  A detour for this will also be in place.

The closures will remain until 7am the next morning.

All work will be done weather permitting.

If you travel this area at night you might want to make arrangements to take another route to your destination.
