Detours to impact connector ramp from US 290 eastbound to I-610 North Loop eastbound
Press Release
Monday, November 06, 2017

HOUSTON – Ongoing US 290 construction at the I-610 interchange continues to move forward. The contractor will work this week on rebuilding  the connector ramp from US 290 eastbound to I-610 North Loop eastbound.  Completing and opening this connector ramp in its final configuration signifies completion of a major milestone for the project. 

In order to facilitate this phase of work, the US 290 eastbound connector to I-610 North Loop eastbound will be closed beginning at 9 p.m., Wednesday, November 8 through 5 a.m., Thursday, November 16.

  • Drivers will be detoured to I-610 West Loop southbound, exit at Woodway/Memorial and U-turn to I-610 northbound.   
  • For an alternate detour via the frontage road, drivers can exit US 290 eastbound at Mangum/Dacoma from the I-10 connector ramp, travel on the frontage road to W. 18th Street and turn left towards the I-610 North Loop eastbound frontage road, and enter I-610 mainlanes past T.C. Jester. 

When the connector ramp reopens on November 16, the US 290 eastbound entrance ramp from W. 34th will also reopen in a temporary configuration as a one-lane entrance ramp, with a dedicated lane onto US 290. In addition, the eastbound entrance ramp from Dacoma to the I-610 North Loop eastbound connector will reopen. The opening of these two entrance ramps restores additional access to the I-610 interchange.

Drivers should use caution as the US 290 exit lane configuration to I-610 will have changed.

  • Travel towards I-610 West Loop: Drivers will exit from the left side of the freeway. The left lane is a dedicated exit to I-610 West Loop with the center lane as an optional exit to either I-610 West or I-610 North Loop. 
  • Travel towards I-610 North Loop: Drivers will exit from the right side of the freeway.  The right lane is a dedicated exit to I-610 North Loop with the center lane an optional exit to either I-610 North or I-610 West Loop.
