Weekend traffic alert: Southwest Freeway shutting down again at the 610 West Loop for interchange work

The closure is scheduled to last from 9 p.m. Friday until 5 a.m. Monday.

HOUSTON — Southwest Freeway will be closed both ways once again as Texas Department of Transportation crews continues its I-610 interchange project. 

The closure will be at the I-610 West Loop. It's scheduled to last from 9 p.m. Friday until 5 a.m. Monday. 

According to officials, crews will continue construction on the new I-69 northbound connector ramp to I-610 West Loop northbound, which spans over the mainlanes of I-69 Southwest Freeway. 

They're scheduled to complete the ramp later this year.

TxDOT officials said they're already planning on another closure in the same area for the weekend of Oct. 1 - Oct. 4. More details to come.

Drivers should expect delays and may want to consider an alternate route. Police officers will be onsite to assist with traffic control.

About the project

The I-69/I-610 interchange is a major connection point of two extremely busy highways serving the Houston area. The $259 million project will significantly enhance safety and improve mobility by widening the connector ramps to two lanes, increasing sight distances, and providing remedies to eliminate weaving.
