Highway 290 Closures
HOUSTON (September 26, 2018)– The Texas Department of Transportation has scheduled nightly closures on Highway 290 from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. starting Tuesday, September 25 through Monday, October 1, 2018.

Houston has had three weeks of weekend rain causing delays with 290 construction. Crews will work overnight during the week in effort to get on track with the projected schedule. The closures are necessary to allow the contractor to open the US 290 westbound mainlanes from Pinemont to West Little York.

Starting Wednesday night, work will take place on the eastbound lanes. If you are on the go, be sure to check out our live traffic updates.
