DPS investigation backs up freeway Thursday

Westbound traffic on Interstate 10 was backed up from the Purple Heart Memorial Bridge into the City of Vidor on Thursday morning due to a Texas Department of Public Safety (TXDPS) fatality accident reconstruction. Special TXDPS investigators, DPS Highway Patrol troopers and several Texas Department of Transportation emergency warning vehicles began the closure of alternating lanes of traffic at the foot of the bridge over the Neches River starting at 9:00 a.m.


With only one lane open at the foot of the bridge, westbound traffic on the freeway quickly stacked up, eventually backing up all the way into Vidor.
