Commuters rejoiced when Beltway 8’s northbound lanes reopened.
But it’s a mixed blessing–because the southbound lanes are still closed, according to ABC 13.
While the roadway was under water for two weeks after Harvey hit, and crews did a miraculous job clearing it, the southbound side still sports a massive sinkhole–all of which means that those lanes are not ready for prime time (or morning-time commutes).
Because some feeder roads are still impassible, navigating around the highway is still challenging.
However, officials are optimistic that the southbound lanes will reopen sometime next week.
