3 p.m. Update: NRH city officials report that both directions of Boulevard 26 are once again open to traffic. Have a safe Friday afternoon trip home everyone. @gdickson
Here's the original story from an hour or two ago:
This just in:
The Texas 26 underpass at Northeast Loop 820 is apparently closed in both directions for some unexpected construction activity, North Richland Hills Police Department spokesman Keith Bauman reports. Locally, the road is also known as Boulevard 26.
If you were planning to use that road during the next couple of hours, make alternate arrangements.
Not clear precisely what the issue is, but Bauman indicated in an email sent through city spokeswoman Mary Peters that it should be resolved later this afternoon.
