59 - 610 Interchange Partial Rebuild in Traffic and Transportation Posted June 9 Am I remembering wrong, or wasn't the IH-610 southbound to IH-69 northbound ramp formerly 2 lanes? Cutting it from 2 lanes to 1 lane seems like very backwards thinking. Though I guess that goes with the views of many here who think that roads should be made smaller to encourage public transit. And yes, I too have now found that exiting to Westheimer and getting back on to get from 610 south to 69 north is quicker. I'm pretty sure that's not something that TxDOT wanted to have happen with this project. i doubt there is a conspiracy here, though; I think it is just incompetence. Thinking that TxDOT is intentionally doing it so that cronies can profit from accidents is totally ridiculous nonsense.
