HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- If you're driving along I-45 this weekend, you may want to plan ahead for a major closure.
TxDOT crews are shutting down all southbound lanes of I-45 near downtown following the massive closure at I-45 and I-69 that started last weekend.

Starting Friday, all southbound lanes from Allen Parkway to the I-69 interchange will be closed.
The closure will last from 9 p.m. Friday until 5 a.m. Monday. All traffic on the I-45 Pierce Elevated will be directed onto I-69 northbound or southbound.
This closure is for continued work on the I-45 and I-69 interchange.
Last weekend, crews tore down the ramp from I-45 Gulf Freeway northbound to I-69 at SH-288 southbound.
The new ramp is expected to open in the summer.
