Houston – The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) will hang steel beams over a section of I-610/West Loop southbound at Post Oak Boulevard as work on the elevated dedicated bus lane continues. The following closures will occur from Friday, July 26 at 9 p.m. to Sunday, July 28 at 5 a.m.
Police officers will be on scene to assist with traffic flow. All closures are subject to change due to inclement weather. TxDOT is asking drivers to continue to be cautious in the construction area.
The I-610 West Loop Dedicated Bus Lane project aims to improve mobility and safety by adding dedicated right of way and separating buses from general traffic to help reduce congestion. This TxDOT project will work in tandem with the dedicated bus lane project under construction by the city of Houston and Uptown Management District which is already underway from I-610/West Loop to Richmond.
