Westbound N. Sam Houston Tollway at N. Sam Plaza Incident likely to last into rush hour
Houston TranStar officials are notifying area travelers that five westbound lanes of the North Sam Houston Tollway at the North Sam Plaza are closed as a result of an incident that occurred early this morning. Three EZ tag lanes at the N. Sam Plaza are open to the public at no cost; however, traffic continues to move slowly through the area. Repairs and cleanup are expected to last until into the rush hour, so this afternoon's traffic in that area will be affected.
Travelers are urged to consider taking another route.
