Drivers in Houston were forced to maneuver around two spools on the westbound lanes of I-10 at Wayside, the scene of the first runaway spool in October.
Traffic was stacked up for hours during the Monday afternoon commute as crews worked to clear the huge debris off the road.
Crews said the spools weighed 18,000 pounds each, and believed they were fiber optic casing.
