These look to be about a month or more outdated but these are the pictures on the official website: https://www.dot.state.tx.us/hou610at69/index.htm

Looking at the charts, the 59/610 interchange has restricted airspace starting at 2,000' above it.  However, since it's a densely populated area, in a plane you'd have to fly at least 1,000' above it.  I'm not sure about the rules for a drone.

There is now a small structure below the 59 North spur. Hard to see what's going on under there! Wonder if the FAA has issues with a drone flying above 59 - 610 :lol:

It's probably Russell Hancock.

610 & Westpark and the 59 spurs is closed for the weekend. 610 is at a halt. Wonder what they are doing? They've been prepping all week, storing their stuff in the HCC parking lot.

I just passed by there. Looks like they're removing the highway sign gantry in front of HCC.

The traffic on I-69 going north into the Galleria area was abysmal with the one lane closed. People tried to skip it by taking Westpark but looks like everyone tried to do that too and I've never seen Westpark that backed up before. Now, I don't take that way in the morning but I do take that way when I come back home. Probably just going to start taking Beltway 8 to get home to the Heights area now (from Sugarland). What's crazy is at Postk Oak going north to Richmond, they've now brought it down to just one lane for both left and right turns and going straight so even I can't take that shortcut anymore now from Westpark. Seems like anyone and everyone should avoid this area if they can until next year. Seriously.

This was what the construction of the interchanges between 290 and I-10 were like when they were working on that part of 610. However, once they get it done it will be great. I have yet to use that part of 610 (290 and I-10) and things not go smoothly. Now looks like people going through this interchange will know what people in Cypress were complaining about.

Yea absolutely. Based on the design they've released, I really think this is going to solve some severe congestion issues in the area. Guess people from Sugarland, Rosenberg, Stafford, etc. areas will just have to deal with it. Good thing I am going opposite of traffic!

Just announced they will now also close a left lane going SOUTHBOUND now. Oh boy. Well, traffic isn't too terrible heading towards Sugarland in the morning but we'll have to see what type of affect this has on my commute.
