Northbound IH-820 Reopens After Overhead TxDOT Sign Collapses

All northbound lanes of Interstate Highway 820 have reopened at Berry Street in Fort Worth after an overhead Texas Department of Transportation sign collapsed onto the road.[[394491461,R]]

The lanes had been closed for more than two hours Thursday afternoon, with traffic diverted onto the service road and U.S. Highway 287.

TxDOT crews brought in a large crane to lift the sign and remove it from the road, setting it on the shoulder of IH-820 so traffic could reopen.

There is no word on whether any vehicles were struck by the falling sign.

The southbound IH-820 lanes remained open, but traffic was slow due to onlookers.
