As of Monday, all five eastbound mainlanes for US-290 from Pinemont to the 610 West Loop have reopened, following a total closure over the weekend to allow crews to place the lanes in its permanent configuration.
Later this year, crews will also build a Highway 6/ FM-1960 bridge over US-290.
TxDOT crews broke ground on the 290 widening project in June of 2011, and expect the project to wrap up by the first quarter of 2019.
