I20 closed for ‘several hours’ in Dallas due to sign damage

All eastbound lanes of Interstate 20 are closed at JJ Lemon (Interstate 45 area) to allow for sign removal.

According to TxDOT, a cantilever sign was compromised in an earlier crash and must be removed. The closure is expected to last for several hours. Crews have been on scene for much of the morning.

Very heavy delays exist back towards I35E. It is best to find another route.

Update – After several hours of work through the overnight hours, the highway has been reopened.
