HOUSTON -- The state of Texas published maps of evacuation contraflow plans and urge residents to be prepared if an evacuation is implemented.
The Texas Department of Transportation designed a contraflow plan to portions of I-10, I-45, U.S. 59 and Highway 290.
Contraflow allows state and local officials to shut down designated inbound lanes and turn them into additional outbound traffic lanes. People evacuating will be directed to designated routes depending on which part of town they live in.
