VAN ZANDT COUNTY, Texas (KLTV) - Traffic is backed up for several miles on a stretch of Interstate 20 in Van Zandt County because of road construction.

Texas Department of Transportation crews have the eastbound inside lane of I-20 closed for road work near Mile Marker 519 in Van Zandt County. As a result, eastbound traffic is backed up several miles.

Motorists traveling that section of I-20 might want to consider taking alternate routes or planning for extra travel time.
