US 59/ Interstate 10 Interchange Construction

Last updated 21-December-2001

Construction location: US59/IH-10
Project Interchange reconstruction and distribution system into downtown Houston.
Cost $126.7 million
Begin Q3 1997
This is a massive project and will provide an impressive interchange structure. This is the first major interchange construction in downtown Houston since US 59/IH-45 interchange was completed in 1974. Funding was authorized in 2001 to build 2 more connector ramps at this interchange at a cost of $17 million. The ramps will connect to the upcoming extension of the Hardy Toll Road.
