A freeway ramp that was shut down for several hours is now back open, but crews still have to make repairs.

Police say an 18-wheeler carrying concrete panels overturned on the ramp connecting the West Loop south to Highway 59 inbound in the Galleria area.

Crews spent hours checking the ramp and making a temporary fix.

TxDOT officials say they'll need to schedule permanent repairs at another date, which means a closure will happen at some point.
