Major Accident: I-45 at Airline
August 9, 2011

MAJOR TRAFFIC ALERT…A sight that we’ve never seen before; below is a Houston Transtar picture of a hydraulic bed that impacted an overhead freeway sign at I-45 North outbound at Airline around 5:30pm, Tuesday evening. Luckily, there have been no reported casualties.

For those of you who drive the North Frwy, traffic is heavily congested into downtown. Take 59 Eastex to avoid brake lights. Southbound traffic is just as bad, so consider the Hardy Toll Road or N. Shepherd Dr.

(As of 7pm) ** I-45 North Frwy will be shut down for next 8-9 hours in both directions as crews repair the overhead sign. We’ll update you in the morning on the freeway conditions.
