If you're going to be out and about this weekend, there are some spots around town that you might want to avoid.

Starting tonight at 9pm, the Highway 290 westbound ramp to Beltway 8 northbound and southbound will be closed. It will stay closed until Monday morning at 5am. Drivers should detour to West Little York and Gessner.

TxDOT also says the 288 northbound connector ramp to 45 north will also be closed beginning at 9pm tonight and reopening at 11am tomorrow. Drivers should detour to Scott Street from 45 southbound, then U-turn and get on 45 northbound.

Finally, a couple weekend closures on the Katy Freeway. The inside lane of the eastbound ramp from I-10 to the West Loop southbound will be closed from 9pm tonight through noon tomorrow. And the I-10 westbound ramp to the 610 West Loop northbound will be completely shut down from 9pm tonight through noon tomorrow. Drivers should detour to Memorial.
