Recently, State Rep. Dwayne Bohac met with TxDOT officials to discuss the progress of the 290 expansion project and tour the soon-to-be completed "flyover lane” which will directly link inbound 290 with I-10 East/West.
This 1.4 mile elevated, dedicated lane takes motorists coming inbound from Jersey Village on 290 directly to I-10 and is on track to open this September. A second direct connector, scheduled to open in 2016, will provide motorists traveling inbound from Katy with direct access to both outbound 290 and the eastbound 610 North Loop.
