Eastbound I-10 Katy Freeway will be closed this weekend so crews can do work on the I-45 bridge.
TxDOT’s Deidrea George says there will be lane restrictions leading up to the I-45 interchange. That’s where all drivers will be forced to exit.
“Beginning at Heights-Yale to the 45 North connector ramp, there will be multiple eastbound lanes closed,” says George. “But we will keep two inside lanes open.”
Those closures start at 7:30 p.m. Friday and the road is expected to reopen by 5:00 a.m. Monday.
TxDOT also plans to do work next weekend. George says her best advice is to carefully plan your route.
“If you don’t actually have to be in that area and you’re just using it as a thruway to get through to 45, we strongly encourage you to use the 610 West Loop as a detour,” explains George.
There’s also a big closure this weekend on U.S. 290. The westbound ramps to northbound and southbound Sam Houston Tollway will be shut down at 9:00 p.m. Friday.
Those ramps will be closed for about six weeks. They’re expected to reopen the morning of March 7.
