Highway officials say the Interstate 10 San Jacinto Bridge near Houston has reopened after loose barges hit the span last week during Tropical Storm Imelda.

The Texas Department of Transportation on Wednesday tweeted that two I-10 westbound lanes are now open, along with two eastbound lanes. Some entrance and exit ramps remain closed during repairs and drivers were advised to expect delays on what’s normally an eight-lane freeway.

Authorities say at least two runaway barges last Friday hit two bridges carrying eastbound and westbound traffic. The Coast Guard reported nine barges broke away from their moorings at a shipyard along the rain-swollen San Jacinto River.

TxDOT spokeswoman Emily Black has said complete bridge repairs could take months.
