    The Texas Department of Transportation reopened Loop 12 underneath Interstate 30 in West Dallas early Monday morning after closing the roadway due to flooding late last week.

    The southbound lanes of Loop 12 reopened Sunday evening after officials initially said the stretch of Loop 12 would stay closed until June 4.The northbound lanes were reopened at about 4:30 a.m. Monday.

    Hundreds of vehicles become trapped when high water submerged the lowest points of Loop 12 Friday. Some drivers were stranded for nearly six hours, gridlocked by vehicles and water.
