Project K December 2015 Pictures 

Crews at night perform pavement noise reduction operations, known as Next Generation Concrete Surface, on the westbound I-610 North Loop mainlanes(left). This process involves grinding and longitudinally grooving the concrete pavement, decreasing tire and pavement noise(right).

 

Project K October 2015 Pictures 

Work is finishing up on this project. This picture shows the I-610 North Loop at West and East T.C. Jester. Construction on this project started in June 2011, and is now substantially complete here and at the Project K portion of the I-610/US 290 interchange.

Project K September 2015 Pictures 

 

Construction on this project is just about done. On the left are the I-610 North Loop mainlanes from the US 290 interchange to Ella Boulevard, and on the right is a wide shot of the I-610/US 290 interchange. All the roadway portions from the middle to the right -- the southbound I-610 mainlanes, the direct connector ramp to I-10, and the southbound I-610 frontage road over Hempstead Road and the Union Pacific Railroad tracks – are complete.

 

Project K August 2015 Pictures 

This image shows the I-610 North Loop eastbound and westbound mainlanes, which are complete between W. T.C. Jester and Ella Boulevard.

Project K June 2015 Pictures 

This picture shows how almost all of this project’s work is complete, construction on this project began in June 2011. Project K built what you see on the right side of the image. That includes the continuous southbound I-610 frontage road, the direct connector to I-10 and the southbound I-610 mainlanes.

Project K May 2015 Pictures 

In the above image, traffic in the middle travels along the new inbound US 290 connector to eastbound I-610. Just above that traffic you can see the new eastbound I-610 mainlanes, on which work is progressing as part of Project J-1 construction.

The picture shows a wide view, from the north looking south, of the work occurring at the I-610/US 290 interchange.


Project K April 2015 Pictures 

In the middle of the picture at left, you can see construction occurring on the new northbound I-610 mainlanes. At right is an image showing a crew on top of one the new northbound I-610 mainlane beams, waiting for a deck panel to come down to them. Those panels are installed on top of the beams, then crews build the mainlane pavement on top of the panels.

Project C1 Img

As of spring 2015, most of the southbound side of the I-610/US 290 interchange had been completed.

The image on the left, on the left side, shows how the contractor shifted inbound US 290 traffic onto new southbound I-610 pavement. This allows motorists to join traffic coming from westbound I-610.

At right, you can see new beams hung on the bottom right side of the picture. These beams are for the new exit ramp from the westbound/southbound I-610 mainlanes to the southbound I-610 frontage road.

Project K January 2015 Pictures 

 

This image shows the middle of the I-610 West Loop. On the left, you can see the red taillights of motorists on southbound I-610, who have come from US 290. By spring 2015, it is anticipated they will move over to the new pavement on the right side of the picture, joining southbound I-610 motorists who came from the North Loop. In the center of the picture is where the contractor is working on the new northbound I-610 West Loop mainlanes.

Project K December 2014 Pictures 

At left is a picture of the I-610 North Loop mainlanes, which are anticipated to be completed between W. T.C. Jester and Ella Boulevard in early 2015. On the right, near the center, crews work on the new I-610 northbound mainlanes.

Project K November 2014 Pictures 

The picture at left shows the I-610 North Loop, which as of this month had almost all the mainlane concrete poured for the bridge structure over West and East T.C. Jester. The I-610 mainlanes from West T.C. Jester to Ella Boulevard are anticipated to be complete by the end of 2014. On the right, crews work to remove the old I-610 westbound/southbound mainlanes. The new I-610 westbound/southbound mainlanes opened in October 2014.

Project K October 2014 Pictures 

On the left, local elected officials and representatives from the TxDOT Houston District cut the ribbon, officially opening the new US 290/I-610 Direct Connector to I-10. In the middle is an image of I-610 westbound motorists exiting to the new direct connector; on the right is a picture of US 290 eastbound motorists exiting to it as well. This marks a huge milestone in program construction, as it means those motorists no longer have to use I-610 southbound to access I-10. This removes the heavy weaving movements which previously exited on I-610 southbound between US 290 and I-10.

Project K August 2014 Pictures 

The image on the left shows progress the contractor has made on the I-610 North Loop mainlanes. The unfinished portion is over West and East T.C. Jester, and is anticipated to be completed by the end of 2014. On the right is a shot of the new I-610 southbound mainlanes at US 290. From these mainlanes, motorists can stay to the left to continue on I-610 southbound, or stay on the right to access the new direct connector to I-10. That direct connector is anticipated to open in October 2014.

Project K July 2014 Pictures 

At left is a rooftop picture of the I-610/US 290 interchange which is now changing greatly every month. On the right, on the right side of the image, are steel beams which curve to the south. Ultimately that roadway portion will take westbound I-610 motorists to the new I-10 direct connector. The portion of that connector coming from inbound US 290 is expected to open in October 2014.

Project K June 2014 Pictures 

On the left is a picture looking south at the I-610/US 290 interchange, which has changed dramatically in 2014. In the foreground are the new southbound I-610 mainlanes. At the top right of the image, to the right of the existing southbound I-610 mainlanes, are: the old HOV lane which is being demolished, the new southbound I-610 mainlanes, the new direct connector from US 290 and I-610 to I-10, and the new southbound I-610 frontage road over Hempstead Road.

On the right is a truck using the new direct connector from westbound I-610 to US 290. Motorists now make that movement east of the interchange.
