In the evening hours of Monday, August 24, a portion of the support structure on a North Loop 289 overpass was damaged when it was hit by a semi-truck.

The accident occurred at North Loop 289 and Ash Avenue when a semi-truck carrying a pump jack collided with the structure, resulting in the closure of the overpass around 6:50 p.m. as a precautionary measure.

TxDOT officials decided to close the roadway after being called to the scene to inspect the safety for further travel along the overpass.

Traffic is being diverted to the frontage roads and detours are in place.
