BUSHLAND, TX (KFDA) -

The Texas Department of Transportation has opened the westbound bridge on I-40 at RM 2381 in Bushland.

Construction on the bridge began on August 21 after a semi-truck veered off the interstate, striking the westbound bridge in February. 

"We appreciate the entire Bushland community's patience and understanding as we worked with our contractor to facilitate this project," said Construction Inspector for TxDOT's Amarillo Area Darrell Caldwell. "Even though the bridge is ready to carry traffic, workers will still be present for at least the next few weeks, so we ask everyone to continue driving with caution in that area."
