ECTOR COUNTY, TX (KWES) - Traffic is reportedly backed up traveling westbound on Highway 80 near Odessa.

The cause of the backup appears to be an accident close to the light at Faudree and Highway 80.

Traffic is also reportedly at a standstill on I-20 as portions of the road are limited or closed due to construction and flooding. Many people are leaving I-20 and taking Highway 80, causing further congestion.

Drivers are encouraged to take 191 heading towards Odessa to avoid the traffic jam.
