US 90 eastbound at Lackland reopens after contractor hits overhead sign, causing shutdown

One KSAT viewer said she was stuck for about two hours.

SAN ANTONIOUpdated at 2:38 p.m.:

The highway was reopened Monday afternoon, officials said.

Original Story:

Road construction combined with a construction accident and a separate car crash made for a rough Monday morning commute on U.S. 90 near JBSA-Lackland on the city’s West Side.

Texas Department of Transportation officials said delays due to scheduled roadwork were exacerbated when a contractor that was paving in the area hit an overhead sign with a crane. Another collision was also reported. All of the incidents combined made for a very long delay for commuters.

One KSAT viewer said she was stuck for about two hours.

The delays continue mid-morning, so it’s best to avoid the area.
