In March 2013, the outbound US 290 HOV entrance at the I-610/US 290 interchange moved from its former location near Dacoma Street to a new location closer to Hempstead Road. Construction of a new ramp made this change possible, as the contractor is in the process of removing the old outbound HOV entrance ramp.

The contractor has cleared right of way and is now installing storm sewers in the area of outbound US 290 between the I-610 interchange and W. 34th Street. Eventually in this area the direct connector ramp from the I-10 Katy Freeway to outbound US 290 will also be built.
