Live traffic conditions on Houston freeways

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Drivers along the Katy Freeway could experience some traffic backups as authorities are working to remove a spool stuck under a bridge.

You read that right, a spool!

According to Houston police, crews are working on the eastbound lanes of the Katy Freeway at Houston Avenue trying to remove the 'oversize load' stuck under the bridge.

At this time, two lanes are closed until further notice.

This is not the first time an oversized load gets stuck under this exact bridge. Back in September, a truck hit the bridge and was stuck for a couple of hours.

This is also not the first time drivers along the road have dodged spools. In 2018, drivers dodged spools on the highway between October and December.
