HOUSTON – No, this isn't deja vu. A giant spool that created a hazard on the same Houston roadway has been removed.
An 18-wheeler lost its load after striking a railroad bridge across I-10 near Wayside at around 4:25 p.m. Monday. Two giant spools spilled onto the East Freeway.
The two left lanes were blocked off by authorities for several hours.
Authorities urged motorists to avoid the area as crews worked to clear the scene. The freeway was cleared around 7 p.m.
There are no reports of injuries.
The Texas Department of Transportation said Monday the same bridge caused both incidents.
In the Oct. 25 spool issue, the wheel with what appeared to be tubing got loose from a flatbed truck, but was later moved back to the truck, according to TxDOT.
