HOUSTON – TxDOT announced Saturday the reopening Eastex Freeway northbound at Parker Road after an emergency repair.

The agency said Friday that the project closed three lanes Friday. Crews repaired a large pothole on the thoroughfare.

Officials said the project will require cutting out the surrounding concrete and laying new concrete.

This is not the only major traffic construction project underway in Houston. Business owners and drivers are also bracing for the major ramp closures at Southwest Freeway and I-610.
