The Harris County Toll Road Authority began constructing improvements to the Westheimer and Bellaire entrance and exit ramps on the South Sam Houston Tollway in July.

The changes consist of widening the existing EZ TAG lane and adding an additional full service lane, providing a total of three lanes for the Westheimer entrance and exit ramps. The Bellaire southbound entrance ramp will be converted from the existing two narrow lanes to a wider single EZ TAG-only lane. The lanes at the northbound exit ramp to Bellaire will be widened to enhance safety for drivers.

The project is anticipated to take approximately nine months.
