Heads up, drivers: Traffic nightmare headed to Houston's west side

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- We've dealt with flooding closures this week, but that won't likely change our weekend construction routine. Your drive on the west side could be a little slow this weekend behind some closures on US-290 and near the West Loop and Southwest Freeway as well as the Gulf Freeway. Here are some of the biggest closures happening in our area starting Friday night:
