Dallas bridge with hole had been inspected recently

| 5/5/2008

A 2-foot-by-3-foot hole on an Interstate-30 bridge in downtown Dallas caused delays during Monday’s early morning commute.

A motorist reported the hole at about 10 p.m. Sunday. KXAS-TV reported that chunks of concrete from the hole damaged several cars, bending the rims of wheels. The hole was repaired and lanes were opened shortly before 7 a.m. Monday.

TxDOT spokesman Randy Black told The Dallas Morning News that the bridge had been inspected within the past 30 days. “Results were normal,” he said.
