Two direct connectors were constructed in the late 1960's for the opening of Houston Intercontinental Airport in 1969. Construction completed in 1998 replaced one of those two connectors, and added 2 new connectors for a total of 4 complete connectors. This project will build the 4 remaining direct connectors.
