Traffic snarls due to bridge construction

Posted: Updated:

Construction work on the Neches River Bridge in Beaumont is creating a traffic nightmare on Interstate 10 where motorists are moving at a snails pace.

Work crews shut down the westbound and two middle lanes.

Some 12 News HD viewers say they have been stuck in traffic all morning.

The Texas Department of Transportation says the work will continue throughout the weekend and will wrap up Monday morning.

If at all possible avoid the area and take alternate routes.
