Road construction slows traffic near Sweetwater

SWEETWATER, TX (KCBD) -

Ongoing road construction on Interstate 20 forced lane closures and brought traffic to a virtual halt Sunday evening near Sweetwater.

Back in September, a tractor trailer crashed into the US-84 overpass. Crews were repairing the damage on Sunday.

Nolan County officials say backups from this construction caused several minor accidents, causing traffic to back up even more.

No injuries were reported.
