US 59 Eastex Closed at North Loop 610
Total Closure Expected to Last Four Hours

Officials at Houston TranStar are advising travelers in the region to avoid the US 59 Eastex Freeway at the North Loop after a northbound 18-wheeler carrying a load of metal fell from an overpass onto the US 59 northbound lanes below.

The incident has closed both directions of US 59. Damage to the concrete barrier separating the north- and southbound lanes will require repair; lanes are expected to reopen at about 4 PM today.
