TxDOT says they are presently opening Highway 59 at Bellaire after completion of the emergency construction.

The two southbound lanes of the Southwest Freeway had been closed at Bellaire Blvd. since Wednesday morning as crews repaired an expansion joint between the lanes. METRO also opened up the HOV lanes to all travelers to help ease congestion.

There's still plenty of congestion in the area and you're advised to steer clear of the area.
