I-44 re-opens at Missile Road

WICHITA FALLS, TX (KAUZ) - All lanes of I-44 at Missile Road have re-opened after a crash happened earlier this week.

The underpass was damaged when a semi-truck pulling an excavator hit the bottom of the bridge.

This week, Texas Department of Transportation crews were able to clean up debris and shore up the beams allowing traffic on I-44 to re-open.

Missile Road will continue to have one lane closed.

TxDOT said permanent repairs will be done under an emergency contract as soon as the plans can be finished.
