HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Lanes reopened early on the I-610 West Loop on Sunday while undergoing construction as part of the Texas Department of Transportation's interchange project.

The video above is from a previous report.

TxDOT initially announced that closures could be expected until Monday, July 18 at 5 a.m.

While construction continues on the new I-610 northbound mainlane bridge over I-69, the work that took place this weekend reopened the I-610 West Loop northbound exit to Westheimer, which had been closed since January.

The I-69/I-610 interchange is a major connection point between two extremely busy highways serving the Greater Houston area.

TxDOT says the $259 million project will significantly enhance safety and improve mobility by widening the connector ramps to two lanes, increasing sight distances, and providing remedies to eliminate weaving.
