HOUSTON – Good news for some commuters in Houston.
The Texas Department of Transportation announced the new Gulf Freeway northbound connector to Interstate 69 and state Highway 288 southbound is open for drivers. The connector ramp is located before the Cullen Boulevard exit.
We are all opened up on the new I-45 Gulf Freeway NB connector to I-69/ SH 288 SB. Remember you will catch this connector ramp just before Cullen. Enjoy! pic.twitter.com/czSMZmMZxN— TxDOT- HOU District (@TxDOTHouston) June 22, 2019
The I-45 Gulf Freeway northbound direct connector to I-69 and 288 southbound was closed permanently Jan. 25 for the new connector. During the $30 million project, drivers had to take alternate routes by taking Interstate 10 west back to I-45 north.
