East Freeway Shutdown for Weekend

Westbound lanes of I-10 between Hwy 59 and Hwy 45 will be closed until Sunday.

TxDOT says a tractor trailer hauling steel rolled Friday afternoon.  The crash and flying steel dug up parts of the interstate exposing steel rebar and leaving huge pot holes.

Road crews will have to go in and fill the holes and cut the exposed steel and lay new rebar before the surface can be repainted and reopened.

TxDOT says I-10 westbound will reopen sometime Sunday afternoon.  Currently police are rerouting traffic to 610 until the interstate reopens.
