“Travelers are advised to choose another route or departure time if possible, as traffic is backed up to Shepherd. The closure and resulting traffic congestion is expected to last through the rush hour, so travelers are strongly urged to take another route or choose another departure time,” stated authorities with Houston TranStar.

The incident remains under investigation at this time.
