Project Updates - May 27, 2020

By Danny Perez

There has been great progress with the I-610 West Loop/ I-69 Southwest Freeway interchange project. The new I-69 northbound connector ramp to I-610 southbound was recently opened. This included the opening of the Fournace exit from the connector ramp. Motorists coming from Sugarland that want to go to Bellaire, for example, could use this exit ramp without having to get onto I-610.

Also, currently crews are working on the demolition of the old I-69 northbound connector ramp to I-610 southbound. This will allow for the work to progress on the IH 610 northbound to IH 69 souhtbound connector.

The new I-610 southbound exit to Fournace is expected to open in late May or early June, 2020. Also, the new I-610 southbound entrance ramp from Hildalgo/ Westheimer is anticipated to be open in late May or early June, 2020.

Looking ahead for this summer:

  • The IH 69 northbound frontage road between I-610 West Loop and Newcastle is estimated to be completed by late summer, 2020. This also includes the Newcastle Dr. intersection.
  • The IH 610 southbound entrance ramp from Fournace will be closed by May, 2020.
  • Major work for the IH 610 northbound to I-69 southbound connector ramp and the I-610 southbound to I-69 northbound connector ramp will continue.

We are making great progress and taking every opportunity to accelerate work where we can. Our goal has always been to complete this project as quickly as possible while also minimizing impacts to the traveling public.
