TxDOT road closings update

From TxDOT:

Texas Department of Transportation Lubbock District maintenance crews will continue work tonight to remove snow from roadways across the South Plains as long as temperatures allow. Lubbock area crews will continue to monitor bridges and overpasses overnight.

I-27 remains closed from the northern Lubbock city limits to Amarillo. While crews have made progress in removing snow from the main lanes in Lubbock County, I-27 north of Abernathy remains snow-packed and impassable in large areas. Many of the frontage roads from Lubbock to Amarillo also remain snow-packed.

Motorists are strongly discouraging from traveling in the Lubbock and Amarillo (Texas Panhandle) and Childress areas overnight due to icy conditions and snow packed roads.

Several roadways in the Amarillo and Childress areas remain closed to traffic including I-40, from New Mexico to Oklahoma and US 287 from Amarillo to Childress. For additional road closure information log onto drivetexas.org

Snow removal operations will resume tomorrow once temperatures rise above freezing.
