HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- A lost load of granite has been cleared after it caused slowdowns for drivers on the North Freeway this morning.

Crews worked to clean up the mess for hours. The lost load had been blocking three southbound lanes of I-45 at West Road since 1:30 a.m. Wednesday.

It caused delays for drivers coming in from the Spring area and The Woodlands. At one point, traffic stretched past the Beltway.
