I-20 lane closure through Christmas in East Texas
« on: November 19, 2011, 02:37:22 PM »

Got caught up in this awful traffic back up on Thursday. Two 18-wheelers caught fire in a wreck on top of an overpass. It isn't the busiest stretch of roadway, but I bet with upcoming holidays it could cause some back ups and longer travel time.

I'm familiar with that area. The Detour via US 80  is going to be Hell. But it might help the city coffers since Marshall has lots of Red Light Cameras. :-/
