HOUSTON – Heavy rain Tuesday led to erosion along a road in west Harris County, prompting officials to close a portion of the road.
According to Harris County deputies, Kieth Harrow Boulevard was closed in both directions between Windsong Trail and West Harrow Drive.
Update: eastbound side of Kieth Harrow is gone at W. Harrow. Westbound side closed as a precaution. Some work was being done to replace underground pipes. Heavy rains could worsen the issues. #HouNewe https://t.co/WGaAbi8lZm pic.twitter.com/lcx2ogkqNH— Ed Gonzalez (@SheriffEd_HCSO) October 30, 2019
Officials said a sinkhole was noticed earlier in the day after nearly two inches of rain fell in the area.
Crews closed the road to traffic while they work to repair the damage. It was not immediately clear how long that would take.
Drivers were asked to avoid the area.
