HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Make sure you plan ahead! Construction on Houston-area roadways may slow down your weekend Halloween plans.

Watch out for two closures in the Galleria area and a major closure on Houston's southside.


The ramp from northbound I-69 to the southbound West Loop I-610 closes at 9 p.m. Friday. The ramp will reopen at 5 a.m. Sunday.

To avoid the closure, drivers can exit at Weslayan and make a U-turn.

At the same time, two outside lanes of I-69 northbound will be closed between Fountainview and the West Loop during the same time period, likely causing delays.


The westbound connector ramp from I-45 northbound to I-610 will be completely closed from 9 p.m. Friday through 5 a.m. Monday.

Drivers can exit at Broadway and go through the intersection to I-45 north instead.

The westbound lanes I-610 from SH-225 to I-45 will also be completely closed during that time frame.

Drivers can exit at Broadway and go through the intersection to the I-610 westbound entrance. The exit to I-45 south will be open.
