The Houston District of the Texas Department of Transportation is leveraging the dollars from the American Recovery and Reinvestments Act to mobilize some of the much needed roadway maintenance work that has been delayed for many years on IH-10 in the heart of downtown Houston.

In late fall, IH-10 eastbound traffic was reduced to one lane from the IH-45 North and IH-45 South exit ramps to White Oak Bayou for approximately three months. The IH-10 eastbound exit to Smith Street will remain open. It is the first of three phases for the 18-month repavement project.
