Re: Cattle truck crash closes a lane of 1-20 at Longview (Update)

I-20 westbound lanes west of Estes Parkway now open following two crashes that shut down lanes during the last 12 hours. The overturned cattle truck from the first crash that occurred between 6 and 6:30 am shutdown the inside WB lanes for some 12 hours. The second crash involving eight vehicles occurred in late afternoon just a couple of miles from the first scene requiring I-20 traffic to be diverted. Traffic flow should return to normal soon.

Motorists are reminded to use caution during travel.

Re: Cattle truck crash closes a lane of 1-20 at Longview (Update)

Hello, (Becky please post)

Crews continue to work to remove an overturned cattle truck and clear I-20 westbound about three miles west of Estes Parkway in Longview. The roadway remains at one lane with the westbound inside lane closed until further notice.

Meanwhile, this afternoon another crash near the same area of I-20 involving eight vehicles has added to traffic bring back up. This one occurred about a mile west of Estes Parkway. No word on injuries. I-20 westbound traffic is being diverted onto Estes Parkway to Loop 281 and SH 31 until the roadway is cleared.
