Why you'll want to avoid parts of 610 North Loop this weekend

HOUSTON – Major roadwork will close some highly-traveled roads this weekend.

Beginning Friday at 9 p.m., the westbound lanes of 610 North Loop will be closed at I-45 to Airline until Monday morning at 5 a.m.

The feeder road dead-ends in the area, so the recommended detour is 45 southbound to I-10 westbound to 610 northbound.

In addition to the main lanes, other nearby ramps and feeder roads will be closed or impacted, so commuters are asked to avoid the area.  

A full-depth repair is scheduled, in which crews replace concrete and rebar at various spots that have had issues. 

According to TxDOT, officers will be on site to assist.
