Southwest Freeway opens early after roadwork completed ahead of schedule

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- There's no tunnel and there's no light at the end of it, but it's still some good news for Houston commuters!

All southbound main lanes of I-69 Southwest Freeway and the I-610 West Loop have opened early, according to TxDOT.

Roadwork scheduled for this weekend was completed sooner than anticipated.

While the big interchange closures are done for this weekend, the I-610 West Loop northbound exit to Westheimer and the northbound frontage road between Westpark and Richmond are still closed.
