Crews are working to complete emergency repairs to a section of Interstate 69, just south of Kingwood, Texas, after Hurricane Harvey’s floodwaters shifted the depth and alignment of the San Jacinto River, causing scouring and stability problems around the bridge’s foundations.
As a result, the southbound bridge can no longer carry extremely heavy loads. Contractor Webber LLC began work in February on the $7.5 million emergency repair expected to be complete in late summer or early fall. The job is the Texas Department of Transportation’s (TxDOT) largest post-Harvey reconstruction project.
