A major traffic accident  on westbound I-10 between the North Tram Road overpass and the KCS  rail line overpass has shut down all traffic lanes of westbound I-10.  The westbound freeway service road (Morgan St.)  between E. Railroad and North Tram Road is also closed to traffic.  Westbound traffic is backed up for several miles and being diverted at F.M. 1132.  Motorist are advised to avoid westbound Interstate 10.  Because of extensive structural damage to the roadway and outside concrete retaining wall, the westbound lanes are not expected to be open before 6:00 p.m or 7:00 p.m. on Friday evening.  Motorists should avoid the area and find alternative routes.



All westbound lanes of Interstate 10 in Orange County are now open.  However, the westbound feeder road near the original crash scene will remain closed for another hour or so.
