HOUSTON – The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) will be hanging steel beams over a section of IH 610/West Loop southbound at Woodway Drive as part of the elevated bus lane project. There will be a total closure of IH 610/West Loop southbound mainlanes starting Friday, November 9 at 9 p.m. to Monday, November 12 at 5 a.m.

Southbound drivers can detour the closure by exiting at Woodway, following the IH 610 southbound Frontage Road to the next entrance ramp onto IH 610 southbound. There will be police officers at the Woodway intersection to direct traffic.

The IH 610 West Loop Dedicated Bus Lane project aims to improve mobility and safety by adding dedicated right of way and separating buses from general traffic to help reduce congestion on IH 610/West Loop. This TxDOT project will work in tandem with the dedicated bus lane project under construction by the City of Houston and Uptown Management District which is already underway from IH 610/West Loop to Richmond.

TXDOT is asking drivers to continue to be cautious in the construction area.

Road closure information will be posted at For more information, contact Emily Black at (713) 802-5022. Follow us on Twitter @TxDOTHoustonPIO.
