Authorities still have all main lanes closed on 59 southbound after an overnight semi crash and fire. Hazmat crews are also on scene.
 
The incident occurred near the San Jacinto Bridge.
 
The driver of the semi, who unfortunately died in the crash, was heading southbound on 59 when he struck roadside barriers. The 18-wheeler was hauling lawn mowers.
 
Multiple secondary accidents occurred while onlookers drove by the scene.

I just heard about this. News stations are telling them to take WLHP to 1960 as an alternate, so that route will be horrible, too.

@carol888 : Yes, I just passed under the 59 underpass at Kingwood Drive. Traffic is stacked up.

@Cowboys81 : Part of the reason I posted, Plus not everyone lives in Atascocita!
When I saw, I texted my daughter (lives in Porter works in Humble) she can work at home so this morning she is!

Officials are now saying the only viable alternative is taking 99 to Hardy or 45. Over 2 hours to get through.

It is still closed and the back up is for miles. It looks like a parking lot. Just passed by there going North on 59. May the truck driver RIP.

Just found out that the freeway will be closed until at least 3:30 p.m.
But in my honest opinion, if you don't HAVE to go anywhere south of Kingwood Drive today...just don't.
