Highway Access Road Collapse Getting Worse

As a section of roadway in the 1600 block of Southeast Parkway (Hwy. 199 service road) continues to sink deeper by the week, a spokesperson for the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) says the agency’s staff is close to completing plans for the replacement of the retaining wall. That wall has moved significantly toward the main lanes of the highway due to pressure from the sinking roadway.
