HOUSTON – Ongoing US 290 construction at the I-610 interchange continues to move forward. The contractor will work this week on rebuilding the connector ramp from US 290 eastbound to I-610 North Loop eastbound. Completing and opening this connector ramp in its final configuration signifies completion of a major milestone for the project.
In order to facilitate this phase of work, the US 290 eastbound connector to I-610 North Loop eastbound will be closed beginning at 9 p.m., Wednesday, Nov. 8, through 5 a.m., Thursday, Nov. 16.
When the connector ramp reopens on Nov. 16, the US 290 eastbound entrance ramp from W. 34th will also reopen in a temporary configuration as a one-lane entrance ramp, with a dedicated lane onto US 290. In addition, the eastbound entrance ramp from Dacoma to the I-610 North Loop eastbound connector will reopen. The opening of these two entrance ramps restores additional access to the I-610 interchange.
Drivers should use caution as the US 290 exit lane configuration to I-610 will have changed.
