HOUSTON- Heads up if you are planning to drive around the Galleria area this weekend as there will be some major road closures as the I-69 / 610 West Loop interchange project continues.
These are continuous closures starting at 9:00 p.m. Friday and going through 5:00 a.m. Monday:
-Two of the northbound main lanes of I-69 between South Rice and 610 the West Loop will be closed.
-Also, the northbound connector ramp from I-69 to 610 the West Loop will be closed.
-Finally, the 610 northbound and southbound connectors to I-69 southbound will be completely closed. That closure only goes through 5:00 a.m. on Sunday.
For an alternate route, you can avoid I-69 altogether and take Richmond Avenue into town. If you are coming from the Stafford or Sugar Land area, take the Chimney Rock exit off I-69 and get to Richmond Avenue that way.
