U.S. 183 reopens at MLK after bridge hazard

AUSTIN – Police have reopened both directions of U.S. 183 at MLK Boulevard in East Austin after a hazard with the MLK overpass.

The 183 South Project said in a tweet there are “concerns about stability” of a railing on the old MLK Bridge over U.S. 183 and Ed Bluestein Boulevard.

Traffic was being diverted onto the frontage roads for around two hours while the contractor inspected the bridge.

This story will be updated as more information becomes available.
