MAJOR 290 NW Frwy Snag!

EMERGENCY ROADWAY CLOSURE

ON US 290 WESTBOUND FROM FM 1960 TO HUFFMEISTER

(Houston) – All lanes of US 290 westbound from FM 1960 to Huffmeister are currently closed due to an overturned 18-wheeler and damage to an overhead sign structure.  All traffic will be detoured to the FM 1960/SH 6 exit.  To return to  US 290 westbound, motorists will need to turn left on SH 6 and take the Old Hempstead exit, make a right at Hempstead Highway, turn right on Huffmeister and continue straight to access US 290 westbound.

Initial estimates to restore traffic are between 6 and 8 hours.  Motorists should expect significant delays considering this closure will continue through the evening rush hour.  Motorists are strongly encouraged to seek alternate routes.
