US 59 South/IH 610 West Interchange Reconstruction

Existing Conditions

The US 59/IH 610 Interchange is a major connection point of two extremely busy highways serving the greater Houston Area and beyond.  In the vicinity of the interchange, US 59 provides access to Inner Loop developments and downtown Houston (to the north) and residential/commercial developments (to the south.)  IH 610 is a loop circling downtown Houston and the west portion of the Loop in the vicinity of the interchange provides access to Memorial Park, the highly developed Galleria area, and the City of Bellaire.
