Crews will be demolishing old ramps this weekend.

Houston's incessant highway construction will take its toll on H-Town drivers yet again this weekend.

There are a few closures around town you'll want to remember before hitting the road. The only total closure is going to be all lanes of Interstate 69 at West Loop 610 on the southwest side of Houston.

The closure will allow crews to demolish the old connector ramps from the Loop to I-69. The work is part of a $259 million revamp of the highway interchange.

The southbound exits for Newcastle and Chimney Rock will also be closed. The closure comes days after the new connector ramp from the Loop to I-69 southbound opened.

The ramp to I-69 northbound opened weeks ago.

Near downtown, three eastbound lanes of Interstate 10 between Studemont and Houston Avenue will be closed. That closure includes the onramp from Taylor Street.

Do you have the secret detour around the Southwest Freeway closure? Let me know on Twitter: @JayRJordan.
