There are two major freeway closures on Highway 290 this weekend.

Beginning at 9 p.m. Friday, US 290 will close at the SH 99 Grand Parkway interchange.

This weekend crews are hanging beams for the new direct connectors from US 290 east- and westbound to SH 99 Grand Parkway southbound.

The freeway will reopen Monday at 5 a.m.

Also tonight, the W. Little York Bridge over US 290 will be closed Friday and Saturday from 10 p.m. to 8 a.m.

The same areas will close again next weekend.

The work at the SH 99/US 290 interchange is part of the $320 million SH 99 Grand Parkway Segment E project.

Construction on this project is estimated to be complete at the end of 2013.
