HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Heads up, Houston drivers! Work on the I-610 West Loop at US-59 may impact your weekend commute.

The Texas Department of Transportation said crews plan to open the West Loop northbound connector ramp to US-59 northbound.

As part of the reopening, TxDOT said two lanes on I-610 northbound at Bellaire Boulevard would close.

The roadwork is part of the I-610 W. Loop/I-69 SW Freeway Interchange Project, which aims to relieve traffic congestion and make the interchange safer.

The entire project is expected to be completed by late this year.
