Here’s evidence that the scheduled reconstruction of the entire West Loop—I-69 interchange just southeast of the Galleria is about to begin. “Crews have been ripping out trees and other vegetation,” reports reader and 610 traveler John Greiner: “Much more than could be argued for improving traffic sight lines.”
These pics show the scene:
All main lanes of I-610 and all of the West Loop’s connections to I-69 (aka Hwy. 59) are scheduled to be rebuilt in the $258.8 million project. The winning bid proposal, by Williams Brothers Construction, provides for 2,030 working days — just under 8 years.
