Major weekend closure of Southwest Freeway SB between Chimney Rock and Weslayan

Motorists can expect delays this weekend due to a major closure of the southbound lanes of the Southwest Freeway near the I-610 West Loop.

The Southwest Freeway southbound lanes will be closed between Chimney Rock and Weslayan beginning 9 p.m. August 2 until 5 a.m. August 5.

Crews are working on the foundations for the new I-610 West Loop southbound connector to I-69 Southwest Freeway northbound.  TxDOT says the $259 million project will "significantly enhance safety and improve mobility by widening the connector ramps to two lanes, increasing sight distances, and providing remedies to eliminate weaving."
