The road was closed for construction work over the weekend, and was scheduled to reopen at 5 a.m. Problems with construction equipment delayed the lanes being opened to traffic.
TxDOT tweeted earlier Monday morning that it had expected the lanes to remained closed through 9 a.m. However, they posted again shortly after 9 a.m. saying that they expect the lanes to be closed through at least noon. By 12:30 p.m., there was no immediate time given for when the lanes would reopen.
