Emergency repairs to Southwest Freeway will affect Houston’s afternoon rush hour

Emergency repairs to a segment of the Southwest Freeway will plague outbound commuters Monday afternoon.

Crews with the Texas Department of Transportation are working to repair damaged pieces of metal on the southbound lanes of U.S. 59/Interstate 69 over Bellaire Boulevard. They have three lanes of the highway shut down for the repairs, a closure that will likely last until at least 6 p.m., according to TxDOT.

Anyone driving out of the city during the Monday afternoon rush hour is urged to plan ahead.
