HOUSTON The Texas Department of Transportation is closing several lanes and ramps this weekend for construction.

If you are driving to Bush Intercontinental Airport, you will likely be detoured near the intersection of US 59 and Beltway 8. On US 59, northbound traffic will be detoured off the freeway at Aldine Bender from 5:00 a.m. Saturday until 5:00 a.m. Monday. Several frontage road lanes at the interchange of US 59 and Beltway 8 will also be closed. Follow detour routes, and expect possible delays. As an alternate, take the Hardy Toll Road.

In downtown Houston, crews will be working at the interchange of I-10 and US 59. The US 59 northbound and southbound connector ramp at I-10 westbound will be closed from Saturday, 8:00 p.m. until Monday, 5:00 a.m. Northbound traffic should detour to Collingsworth and u-turn to US 59 southbound, to IH-45 northbound, to IH-10 westbound; southbound traffic should detour to US-59 southbound, to IH-45 northbound, to IH-10 westbound.
