HOUSTON — This is for everyone who already hates Houston traffic: wait a few hours— it's getting worse!
A week-long closure of U.S. 290 eastbound feeding into the North Loop begins Wednesday night, throwing commuters for another loop on top of the years-long construction project.
The major thoroughfare will be closed for construction until Nov. 15. Texas Department of Transportation suggests detouring on 610 South towards the Galleria, u- turn at Woodway, then hop back on . But that'll just land you in what's already the worst traffic situation in the state.
You can also take the I-10 access ramp and loop around that way.
We suggest exiting 290 and taking Mangum over to 18th Street.
Regardless, pack you patience...and maybe a Snickers...you won't be going anywhere for a while.
