Heading Home on 290? Good Luck with That

If your evening-commute plans include traveling west on 290, we pity you.

A major accident has had the road completely shut down for much of the afternoon, and TranStar is now saying things won't improve for rush hour.

All vehicles are being steered off the freeway at 43rd and using the service road to Bingle, where they are allowed to re-enter. It sounds a whole lot smoother than it is.

You might try the Katy to the Beltway, or take I-45 to 249. But wherever you go, it won't be pretty.
