Anyone driving toward Interstate 10 on Spur 330 will see a welcome sight: no construction barrels and no forced exit onto Interstate 10 eastbound.
All of the westbound lanes of Interstate 10 are open now after a weekend complete closure during which the Texas Department of Transportation removed temporary barricades and returned pavement striping to its normal configuration.
Both the direct ramp from Spur 330 and the ramp from FM 2100 onto the westbound Interstate are now open.
Repairs to the San Jacinto Bridge are expected to continue through March and could require similar closures on weekends over the next two months.
TxDOT plans to close the eastbound bridge lanes this weekend to return that side to full service by next Monday. That timetable will be confirmed or pushed back by the end of the week.
Barges torn loose by floodwaters in September hit the bridge supports, causing the bridge to be narrowed while emergency repairs were made.
That was the second time in 2019 that a barge strike slowed traffic on the bridge.
