RICHMOND (Covering Katy) – The Grand Parkway at West Belfort southbound was blocked for several hours earlier today after a crane toppled over and blocked both lanes of traffic. By late afternoon one lane was reopened, allowing traffic to pass.
Fort Bend County Sheriff’s deputies had to blocked off the Grand Parkway at Bellaire, forcing drivers to turn around. Northbound was still open to traffic.
It’s still unclear why the crane flipped over.
Below is a report that aired on KTRK where you can see the crane. The report aired before the roadway was reopened.
