Steer clear of this total closure of the southwest freeway
The southwest freeway will be closed, AGAIN! But don't worry, ABC13's Katherine Whaley has your detours here.

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- This weekend, there's a total closure of the Southwest Freeway inbound from Fondren to Hillcroft.

As an alternate route, take the feeder road or use the Westpark Tollway. Crews are performing maintenance on the Hillcroft bridge.

In Galveston County, the northbound exit to League City Parkway will be blocked, so detour to FM-518.

Additionally, the northbound exit to FM-646 will be closed. Drivers can use FM-517 instead.
