Westpark Entrance and Exit Ramp to and from the I-69 HOV Will Be Closed
News Release
Tuesday, February 20, 2018

The ramp closure is needed for the I-610 West Loop/ I-69 Southwest Freeway

HOUSTON – To continue progress on the I-610 West Loop/ I-69 Southwest Freeway Interchange Project, the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) will close the I-69 Southwest Freeway HOV entrance and exit ramps at Westpark just under the interchange on February 23 at 9 p.m. The HOV entrance and exit ramps will remain closed for the duration of the construction project.

Motorists will be able to access the I-69 Southwest Freeway HOV just east of the I-610 West Loop/ I-69 Southwest Freeway interchange at Edloe. Motorists will also be able to exit the I-69 Southwest Freeway HOV at Edloe. (See attached map for more details)

Williams Brothers Construction recently began preliminary work on the I-69/ I-610 West Loop Interchange project with plans to start major construction in the coming months.

The I-69/I-610 interchange is a major connection point of two extremely busy highways serving the Greater Houston area. The $259 million project will improve safety and mobility while reducing congestion by widening the connector ramps to two lanes, increasing sight distances, and providing remedies to eliminate weaving. The project also calls for adding shoulders on the I-610 West Loop mainlane bridge over I-69 and adding detention ponds.

Construction will be phased and will include night time and weekend road closures. The project has incentives and disincentives to encourage the contractor to complete various phases sooner than anticipated.

The project is expected to take about five to six years to complete. Road closure information will be posted at Follow @HOU610at69 on Twitter for updates and more on this project.
