Viewer Email: Gulf Frwy at 610

 
Q:

A:
Earlier in the month, the steel girder beneath the IH 45 northbound lanes was hit by an 18-wheeler transporting a piece of heavy equipment higher than the permitted load which truck and damaged the beam as the driver attempted to make the connection from IH 45 southbound to Loop 610 eastbound. TxDOT had to close the inside lane of IH 45 northbound near Loop 610 to remove the load from the bridge until repairs are made, leaving motorists confined to two northbound lanes in the area.

It took time for the city to decide on a contractor and materials had to be ordered…price tag $107K!

They plan to re-open that left lane by the end of July.
