AUSTIN (KJCE) - A traffic snarl on the city's east side has been cleared, after crews closed the interchange at Highway 183 and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard this morning.

Crews were concerned about a railing on the MLK bridge over the highway, which is in the process of being demolished and replaced by a newer structure as part of the 183 South project. After an inspection, crews were able to re-open Highway 183 in both directions as well as MLK traffic over the highway around noon Friday.
