| This is the only BW8 stack to have its roots in the 1960's. When Intercontinental Airport opened in 1969, the BW8 feeders between I-45 north and US 59 north were constructed. Two direct connectors were constructed.
The Beltway 8 main lanes were added in 1991, and three new connectors were completed in 1998. One of the connectors replaced a 1960's connector, so four connectors are in service at the present time.
In the aerial photo taken around 1996, the connector ramps are under construction and I-45 is being widened.
The remaining four connectors have just begun construction as of August 2000.
