HOUSTON – A major accident tied up traffic Tuesday at the North Beltway eastbound at the US 59 frontage in northeast Houston.
The ramp from the Beltway to Highway 59 was shut down because of the accident.
The closure is expected to last through the evening rush period, Houston TranStar officials said.
Exiting traffic at Lee Road was either turning right or forced back onto the Beltway beyond the accident.
Travelers were urged to find an alternate route.
