Major long-term closures at 610 and 288 interchange about to start
This is how long those closures are expected to last.

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Houston commuters who frequent the 610/288 interchange will need to plan a way around a major, long-term closure that got underway this weekend.

As part of the I-610 Cambridge project, the SH 288 northbound and southbound direct connectors to I-610 South Loop westbound are closed until mid-February, according to the Texas Department of Transportation. The closure began Friday night just before the start of the weekend.

There has been no word if this construction will affect commutes for the 2022 Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo.

TxDOT has supplied the following instructions for affected motorists:

  • Detour to the SH 288 northbound or southbound connector ramp to I-610 eastbound to the Scott Street exit
  • U-turn at Scott Street to the I-610 westbound frontage road
  • Re-enter the I-610 westbound mainlanes via the Scott Street entrance ramp
