Many East Texans are heading to the metroplex tonight to attend playoff games for John Tyler and Whitehouse High School. Be aware that you may experience some slowdowns.
A large fire at a refinery in Garland is causing quite a backup on LBJ freeway, which is 635 at the Jupiter exit. Be prepared for slowdowns by leaving early. If you have loved ones on the way to this area, you might want to give them a call to alert them of this traffic issue.
