BEAUMONT, Texas (KTRK) -- I-10 westbound at Washington Boulevard has reopened a day after a significant crack caused a traffic tie-up.

Around 8 a.m. Monday, TxDOT Beaumont announced on social media that contractors were working diligently to make emergency repairs on the freeway.

Drivers were asked to use an alternate route and expect delays. Traffic was forced to exit off the mainlanes at Washington Boulevard.

In an update around 6:30 a.m., nearly 24 after the initial closure, officials said the westbound lanes had reopened.
