HOUSTON – A new connector that allows drivers from I-10 Katy Freeway direct access to outbound US 290 and I-610 North Loop east is nearing completion. The TxDOT contractor working on the US 290 Project J-1 accelerated work on this ramp, which will provide welcome relief to drivers who experience the daily weave on I-610 West Loop northbound mainlanes between I-10 and US 290.
Crews will work this weekend to finalize pavement markings and signage and then safely switch traffic to the new lanes. The following will be closed:
From 7 p.m., Saturday, May 20, through 5 a.m., Monday, May 22
Once the new connector is opened, drivers will need to adjust to the new traffic configuration (map).
