Drivers experienced major delays around the US-59/I-610 interchange in the Galleria area this weekend.
The freeway will remain shut down until 5 a.m. Monday in both directions between the West Loop and South Rice.
On Sunday evening, crews were re-striping the mainlanes of I-69.
TxDOT had opened the brand new West Loop northbound connector to US-59 Southbound, so now the old one is coming down.
Crews completed the demolition of two old connector ramps over the I-69 SW Freeway mainlanes at I-610 W. Loop. Crews spent most of the day cleaning up. A striping crew will come in this evening to re-stripe the mainlanes of I-69. All mainlanes of I-69 will be open at 5am Monday. pic.twitter.com/xspZKf7aah— HOU610at69 (@HOU610at69) March 8, 2021

Until then, take Richmond or other surface streets as an alternate route.
Drivers also experienced slowdowns on the Katy Freeway this weekend. Three lanes of I-10 were closed inbound just outside of downtown, between Studemont and Houston Avenue.
Take Memorial as an alternate route.
