All appropriate, I know — this is NOT a social gathering and most absolutely NO fun, but yet another significant closure is coming your way!

It all has to do with the I-610/59 interchange reconstruction. Final 7 days we experienced the Southwest Freeway southbound connector ramp to the West Loop southbound key lanes shut down (and it will keep on being shut for the subsequent two a long time by the way.)

For this weekend, the Texas Office of Transportation is operating on the true demolition of that connector ramp so it can be reconstructed, which is why they require to near the Southwest Freeway.

This is what you can assume this weekend:

  • For the following 3 weekends, 59 primary lanes at 610 will shut down in both instructions.

    • IH 69 Southwest Freeway southbound primary lanes at IH 610 West Loop: Full closure constantly, from 9 p.m. Friday, May 6 to 5 a.m. Monday, Could 9.

      • DETOUR: Site visitors to choose connector to IH 610 West Loop northbound primary lanes, just take Westheimer Road exit onto IH 610 North Loop northbound frontage road, U-flip at Westheimer Highway on to IH 610 West Loop southbound frontage street, then choose upcoming entrance ramp onto IH 69 southbound main lanes.

    • IH 69 Southwest Freeway northbound most important lanes at IH 610 West Loop: Complete closure constantly, from 9 p.m. Friday, May well 6 to 5 a.m. Monday, May 9.

      • DETOUR:

        • Targeted traffic to consider connector to IH 610 West Loop southbound most important lanes, choose Fournace Place, exit onto IH 610 southbound feeder highway U-change at Bissonnet St. onto IH 610 northbound feeder. Consider next entrance ramp onto IH 610 northbound principal lanes. Acquire connector to IH 69 northbound key lanes.

        • Alternate detour: Traffic to acquire connector to IH 610 northbound main lanes, acquire Westheimer Road, exit onto IH 610 northbound feeder, U-convert at Westheimer Street on to IH 610 southbound feeder. Acquire next entrance ramp on to IH 69 northbound key lanes.

    • The very same closures mentioned over will be needed for the following weekends: May well 13-16 and May well 20-23.

  • Also, setting up Friday, May 6 at 9 p.m., crews will near the I-69 Southwest Freeway southbound exit ramp to Chimney Rock Road for about two months. Targeted visitors will get the Fountain See exit ramp, U-transform at Fountain Perspective onto IH 69 northbound feeder, to get to Chimney Rock Highway.

  • The 59 southbound connector ramp to the West Loop southbound most important lanes is currently shut and will continue to be shut down for the next two several years. This is likely to effect people that are driving toward Sugar Land and trying to obtain the Meyerland or Bellaire space.

In addition, they’ll be chipping away at this operate for the duration of the 7 days with nightly closures Monday – Friday. (9 p.m. – 5 a.m.) The Monday – Friday closures start off May possibly 23 and will very last until finally Friday May well 27 (as of ideal now, it is just just one week of this).

The I-610/59 interchange is one of the most intensely congested, ranking as the variety one most congested interchange in Texas, according to the Texas Department of Transportation. For the previous numerous years, the advancements intended for this task have aimed to modify that. TxDOT is however on monitor to end the entire task by 2024.
