Traffic Alert: I-610 West Loop NB exit to Westheimer Closure

Contact: Danny Perez

Phone: (713) 802-5077

Date: Jan. 6, 2022

HOUSTON – As part of the I-610 West Loop/ I-69 Southwest Freeway interchange project, the Texas Department of Transportation will close the I-610 West Loop northbound exit ramp to Westheimer beginning Friday, Jan. 7 at 9 p.m. for six to seven months.

During this closure, traffic will be detoured to the I-610 West Loop northbound exit ramp to Westpark Dr. and continue on the I-610 northbound frontage road to reach Westheimer.

To facilitate this work, the mainlanes of I-610 West Loop from Westpark Dr. to Richmond Avenue will also be closed beginning Friday, Jan. 7 at 9 p.m. until Monday, Jan. 10 at 5 a.m. Traffic will be detoured via the frontage road.

Crews will continue preparation for upcoming work on the I-610 West Loop mainlane bridge over I-69 Southwest Freeway.

Motorists should expect delays this weekend and may want to consider an alternate route. Police officers will be onsite to assist with traffic control.

The I-69/I-610 interchange is a major connection point of two extremely busy highways serving the Greater Houston area. The $259 million project will significantly enhance safety and improve mobility by widening the connector ramps to two lanes, increasing sight distances, and providing remedies to eliminate weaving.

The project has incentives and disincentives to encourage the contractor to complete various phases sooner than anticipated.

Additional road closure information will be posted at Houston TranStar and at I-610 W. Loop/I-69 SW Freeway Interchange. Follow @HOU610at69 on Twitter for updates and more on this project.
