A stretch of I-10 near downtown is closed for construction. The westbound lanes will be shut down from San Jacinto to Houston Street. The Louisiana entrance ramp is also closed. The lanes will reopen Monday at 5am. Until then you can detour on I-45.

However, traffic officials suggest using an alternate route. A police officer will be stationed on the freeway to direct traffic.
