Deteriorating Brazos Street bridge on Spur 527 closed for a year


A portion of Spur 527 off I-69 has been shut down over concerns about falling debris from a deteriorating bridge. The Travis and Louisiana street exits remain open.

The Brazos Street bridge was built in 1969, is 660 feet long and will take several months to repair, according to a statement from the city. The bridge will reopen next summer.

Houston Public Works is working with the Texas Department of Transportation and the Houston Police Department to secure the area and notify drivers, according to the statement.

An average of more than 60,000 vehicles per day use the spur to enter Midtown and head into Houston’s downtown, according to TxDOT data.
