The question: When will the Elysian Viaduct reconstruction project near downtown be finished?

The answer: This question comes from KPRC 2 viewer Maricela. The Elysian Viaduct is an elevated road that connects downtown with Elysian and Hardy Streets on Houston’s near northside. The bridge is being rebuilt as a replacement for the old former viaduct, which was outdated and needed to be upgraded.

The good news for area residents and commuters who used to use the Elysian Viaduct regularly: The new road is projected to open in the summer of 2020. Earlier, the expected completion was for Spring, 2020, but minor changes to the project required a short schedule extension.
