The closest thing Houston has to a Bermuda Triangle — also known as various patches of curing roadway concrete known to appear in and around the intersection of Kirby Dr. and the Southwest Fwy. — claimed its third (known) victim over the weekend. It wasn’t a Lexus this time, or a Jaguar, but a bright red Mustang that found itself solidly rooted in the recently poured stew on the westbound feeder road between Greenbriar and Kirby Dr. early Saturday morning.
The person who posted what appears to be second-hand information about the incident on Reddit indicated that the driver of the car appeared to be attempting to drive through the construction zone to get onto the westbound US-59 onramp before becoming trapped in the thickening mixture, and that no one was hurt in the incident.
Construction on stretches of feeder road along the Southwest Fwy. between Shepherd Dr. and Newcastle has been continuing for a little more than a year.
