Let's face it, everywhere you drive in Amarillo you run into construction.  The good news, they are fixing the roads.  The bad news, it is slowing down traffic all over town and many wrecks are happening because of the construction.  Today, traffic will be slowed down on I-40 eastbound at Soncy.

Today until about 1pm, all traffic traveling east on I-40 will have to exit on Soncy to the frontage road.  All traffic detoured will be able to access I-40 again at Coulter.

Construction crews will be doing stripping work.

If you are traveling this direction today, please make note that this detour will take place until they get the stripping work done.
