More chaos starting at 5 a.m. Saturday (Aug. 24) as construction continues on the rebuilding of the West Loop/Southwest Freeway interchange.
The Texas Department of Transportation will close all northbound mainlanes of I-69 Southwest between Chimney Rock and Weslayan through 5 a.m. Monday (Aug. 26).
Traffic will be detoured to the I-69 northbound connector ramp to I-610 southbound, exit Bellaire Blvd, U-turn at Bellaire Blvd. onto the I-610 Northbound Frontage Rd., turn right (east) onto Westpark Dr., continue on Westpark Dr. and turn left (North) at Weslayan St., then turn right (East) onto the I-69 Southwest northbound frontage road, and take the entrance ramp onto the I-69 northbound mainlanes.
Crews will be working on the foundations for the new I-610 West Loop southbound connector to I-69 Southwest Freeway northbound. Motorists should expect delays and may want to consider an alternate route. Police officers will be onsite to assist with traffic control.
The $259 million project is designed to enhance safety and improve mobility by widening the connector ramps to two lanes, increasing sight distances, and providing remedies to eliminate weaving.
