Part of the Eastex Freeway will be a big traffic mess for most of this week. The 59 northbound ramp to the North Loop is closed. That will allow the Texas Department of Transportation to repair extensive damage the ramp.

Early Sunday morning, a big rig driver took the curve too fast and flipped the truck which caught fire.

Work crews have to remove concrete to the first level of steel on the barrier then refill it.
