ABC13's Katherine Whaley looks at I-10 in east Houston where significant closures are expected heading toward Beaumont.

Sun light is breaking over Houston for the first time during the morning hours since Harvey's deluge.

While the conditions improve atmospherically, the same might not apply for all freeways around the area.

There are freeways in and out of Houston that are accessible:
  • Interstate 10 is passable to and from San Antonio

  • US-290 is open

  • Outbound Interstate 45 North to and from Dallas is accessible


Officials, though, urge caution when taking southbound Interstate 45, mainly near Cypresswood, due to water in the lanes. They also urge highways to be as clear as possible to allow emergency vehicles to come in. Feeder roads in the area of Cypresswood have problems.

I-10 Katy Freeway is driveable but still have water on lanes, mainly the outer ones. Feeder road lanes are also covered in water. You are urged to take some time while traveling on this freeway.

I-10 heading in and out of Beaumont is closed due to high water levels covering both lanes as extreme southeast Texas is battered by Harvey's second landfall.

State Highway 225 at Richey in and out of Pasadena remains covered in water and not passable.
