Roadwork Project To Close Downtown Freeway Ramp Permanently

(Houston, TX)  --  Travelers on the Gulf Freeway are about to find it a lot harder to get downtown.  As of 9 p.m. Friday, the ramp from northbound I-45 to US-59 and Highway 288 will be closed permanently.  

Work crews will tear it down and build a new ramp, scheduled to open in late June.  

Commuters can either detour via the 610 Loop, find a street-level route, or just avoid downtown.  

Over the weekend, I-45 northbound will close at Cullen at 9 p.m. Friday, and southbound will close at Allen Parkway at 6 a.m. Saturday.  Those lanes reopen at 5 a.m. Monday.
