HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Houston is hosting a full schedule of Astros and Rockets games this weekend. If you're attending, don't let major construction closures catch you by surprise.
Drivers may want to consider using I-10 to arrive and depart from downtown, because many of the other major corridors will have closures starting Friday at 9 p.m.
The closures will allow construction crews to continue their work on the new I-45 northbound connector ramp to I-69 and SH-288 southbound near the University of Houston.
Construction closures are subject to change depending on the weather conditions.
I-45 through Downtown Houston
All northbound and southbound lanes will be closed at I-69 starting at 9 p.m. Friday until 5 a.m. Monday. Traffic will divert to I-69.
Two northbound lanes will be closed from Cleburne to Berry starting at 9 p.m. Friday until 5 a.m. Monday.
