Looks like, as previously predicted by multiple posters, this is initially going to be a volleyball interchange.  If and when I-27 is rerouted over it in order to extend it north of Amarillo per P2P plans, a stack will likely materialize if lapses in judgment resulting in dense development occupying the corners doesn't occur. 

And in response to a previous post, if parties in central Amarillo express a preference that the existing I-27 from the loop up to I-40 near downtown remain an Interstate, that'll probably happen via a 3di (this isn't NY, so probably no multi-standard business loops!).  If they don't, it could well revert to a unsigned I-facility retaining the US 60/87 shields.

Work continues on the SW side of Loop 335 west of I-27, although the reporter decides to do most of the video in the pre-dawn hours, so it's a bit hard to tell how workers are progressing.

In the reporter's defense, this was a live report on the early morning (pre-7:00 AM) news program. Sunrise on November 17 in Amarillo was 7:24 AM.

A recorded report designed to be run on news programs at other times of the day wouldn't have been done before sunrise.
