Closures expected along US-290 this weekend

HOUSTON (KTRK) -- Watch out for a couple of major closures along US-290 this weekend!

All outbound (westbound) lanes will be blocked off from Friday at 9:00pm until Monday at 5:00am. Additionally, the HOV lane will be closed in this area.

Eastbound (inbound) lanes will be blocked off a little farther down the road. Those lanes will be closed from 9:00pm Friday until 5:00am on Monday. In either direction, simply detour to the feeder road to get around the closures.

If you are planning to drive to Austin this weekend, use the I-10 route as an alternative to the 290 route.

If you are driving on US-59, you might also notice a few new signs. The new I-69 signs are being unveiled along the SB feeder road of 59, between Buffalo Speedway and Kirby. I-69 is the interstate corridor that connects US-59 Texas from the Mexican border northeast to Texarkana.
