HOUSTON (CBS Houston) On Monday, TxDOT officials released information about a lane closure located at IH-10 East Freeway Eastbound at US-59. Officials further stated that TxDOT Maintenance was on site.

According to transportation officials, an 18-wheeler traveling eastbound at IH-10 the East Freeway onto the US-59 northbound exit ramp overturned and was blocking the ramp.

“Diesel fuel and the big rig’s load of tile must be offloaded before the 18-wheeler can be uprighted,” added officials with TxDOT. “The estimated clearance time may extend into the rush period, so the traveling public is encouraged to consider an alternate route or alter their departure time.”
