Westheimer & Bellaire Ramps on Sam Houston Tollway South To Be Improved

The Harris County Toll Road Authority is scheduled to begin construction of improvements to the Westheimer and Bellaire entrance and exit ramps on the Sam Houston Tollway South on August 10, 2009.

The improvements will consist of widening the existing EZ TAG lane and adding an additional full service lane to provide 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 improve safety for drivers.

Construction impacts at all four locations are expected to be minimal for the traveling public.  The project is anticipated to take approximately nine months to complete.

All closures are subject to change due to weather, emergency work, or other events.  For the most up-to-date information regarding this and other HCTRA project lane closures, access information at Houston TranStar.
