Blown-Over Billboard Keeps Highway Underpass Closed

The Texas Department of Transportation is unable to pump flood water from an underpass due to a fallen billboard.
MIDLAND, TX (Local Big 2 News) - A blown-over billboard keeps parts of Highway 349 closed Thursday tonight, following Wednesday's storms.

The Texas Department of Transportation says it won't open back up until Friday afternoon due to thousands of gallons of water and debris still sitting in the underpass.

The billboard landed on a pump station, preventing crews from restoring power to the pump engine.

Officials encourage southbound drivers to take a Missouri Avenue detour.
