The picture on the left shows crews building a circle of steel rebar near US 290 and Mangum Road, which will be used to support columns for the new direct connector taking I-10 motorists to US 290. On the right is a shot of column rebar already in place. That new direct connector is being built where the outbound US 290 frontage road used to be located.

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.
