IH 610 EAST LOOP NORTH CONNECTOR TO SH 225 EAST TO OPEN AHEAD OF SCHEDULE
“Connector will open tomorrow at 5 a.m., five days ahead of schedule”
(Houston) – The IH 610 East Loop northbound director connector to SH 225 eastbound will open Wednesday, April 27 at 5 a.m. – five days ahead of schedule.
Crews replaced the concrete pavement of the connector, which was initially built in the 1950’s. The pavement was in the advanced stage of deterioration and was no longer cost effective to maintain. The contractor had a maximum of 23 working days to re-open the direct connector to minimize traffic interruptions. For completing the milestone early, the contractor will earn an incentive of $50,000.
