There's going to be a traffic mess for drivers on one stretch of Westheimer for up to a month.
The Harris County Flood Control District has closed two lanes of the Westheimer Road Bridge located just east of Mid Lane inside the West Loop. The old bridge is being demolished and replaced.
Construction signs are up informing drivers that Westheimer has been reduced to one lane. The closure stretches to the railroad tracks in Highland Village.
Officers will be directing traffic in the area. However, drivers are still being advised to avoid the area if possible.
Possible alternate routes include West Loop 610, Memorial Drive, San Felipe Street, Richmond Avenue or Kirby Drive.
