Viewer Email: Coastal Delays?

(THURS.) This morning the southbound lanes of 146 were completely blocked and a detour set up where 146 intersects with I45 south.  We all had to travel several miles north on the feeder of I45 and turn around at exit 7 or 8 to go south again on I45.  Please let your viewers know because this was time consuming.
Thanks,
Jennifer E.

A: Here’s what we found out from TxDOT:
The IH 45 northbound mainlanes over SH 146 sustained significant damage to two outside steel girders due to being hit (over height loads). This happened several times which has required repairs be made. Workers will remove and replace the two steel girders and remove and replace the concrete slab and rail. Work began this week and is scheduled to last 30 days. However, there is a good chance the contractor will be finished earlier as long as the weather cooperates.

As soon as I find out how long it will need to stay closed, I’ll let you know by updating this blog posting.
