HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Traffic around the Galleria may be a little smoother now that the new southbound West Loop bridge over Highway 59 has reopened.
The old bridge will be demolished at a later date.
The West Loop 59 interchange has been under construction since 2017.
In addition to opening three mainlanes on the new southbound bridge, the West Loop entrance ramp from Westheimer Road will also reopen. It's been closed for several months as part of the construction process.
