HOUSTON — If you’re out on the road in southwest Houston, there’s a major construction closure you need to watch out for.

The Texas Department of Transportation plans to close all main lanes of the Southwest Freeway outbound at the 610 West Loop, starting at 9 p.m. Friday and not reopening until 5 a.m. Saturday.

The closure is expected to affect those driving to any areas south of 610.

Your best bet is to look for an alternate route.
