Why does it take over 12 hours to reopen the road after a wreck that had nothing to do with ANY of the bridges? Police are exercising authority they don't have and the people with the authority aren't doing their jobs!!!

This is ludicrous!

Instead of repairing the guard rails they need to just install gates. Push the errant vehicles over the side and let the traffic continue to flow!

I agree. The geniuses at TxDot and Cove's council need to wake up and get this road expanded. It was built wrong from the get-go. After being opened for a couple had to be shut down for repairs due to shoddy workmanship and lousy materials.
