The bypass had been closed since Monday morning, when an accident caused damage to one of the bridges on the bypass.

Just be thankful that if this had to happen, it took place before Copperas Cove starts installing the islands in what is now the center turn lane and reduces the three lanes in each direction down to two lanes. You think it's a mess now you ain't seen nothing yet!
