Texas Department of Transportation officials today announced that the Broadway Street Bridge over I-30 in Sulphur Springs, Texas, sustained no major structural damage due to a recent vehicle fire on west-bound I-30.
The bridge is again carrying traffic across I-30, but the wiring for signal lights on the south side of the bridge was damaged by the vehicle fire. Traffic lights on the north side of the bridge sustained no fire damage.
TxDOT signal crews are working diligently to repair the damage to signal lights on the south side of the bridge. Until that signal can be repaired, traffic at the intersection on the south side of the bridge will be guided by temporary four-way stop signs.
Motorists who regularly travel in this area are asked to pay special attention to all signs, barricades and traffic controls, and to reduce their speed as they approach and travel through work zones where repair crews may be present. They should also avoid distractions such as cell phones, eating, drinking, or car audio or navigation systems.
