SALADO – Preliminary reports from TxDOT engineers on the scene indicate an oversized tractor trailer hit a beam of the FM 2484 overpass bridge that was under construction on I-35. The impact of the truck caused several beams to become dislodged and fall onto the roadway.
TxDOT has shut down I-35 in both directions near this area. Motorists are encouraged to take alternative routes such as SH 95 between Temple and Georgetown; US 190 from Belton to Killeen; and 195 to Georgetown.
Media should contact law enforcement for reports on injuries and crashes.
