Propane Tanker Truck Overturns on Hwy 181 at I-37

CORPUS CHRISTI - All traffic along I-37 and Highway 181 is being diverted due to a tanker truck that rolled over near the Tancahua overpass.

The tanker is carrying a full load of propane, but there is no leak. The truck is upright while the trailer is on its side.

Corpus Christi ISD was notified to have Solomon Coles High School shelter in place just in case.

In order to get between I-37 and Highway 181 all drivers should take the Joe Fulton Corridor or go through Sinton and Taft.

There is a small amount of traffic heading across the bridge to Portland coming from the on-ramps in downtown Corpus Christi. All traffic coming from Portland on the bridge must take the Port Avenue exit before I-37.

Make plans to avoid taking the Harbor Bridge from Portland for the rest of the day. Drivers should exit at the Joe Fulton Corridor. This could be a very lengthy process to offload propane cargo, upright trailer, and haul off.
