AUSTIN (KXAN) — Westbound lanes of U.S. Highway 290 have reopened at Brodie Lane in south Austin after a crash investigation.

The Texas Department of Transportation sent the tweet at 6:07 a.m. advising of the closure. The Travis County Sheriff’s Office said it was conducting a crash reconstruction, and the stretch of road could be closed “for an extended time,” but it wrapped up around 8:30 a.m. and the lanes reopened.

The road is near the Sunset Valley shopping center and Toney Burger Activity Center.
