The I-45 northbound to US-59 northbound highway connector in downtown is going to be down for six months.

TxDOT said the goal will be for the ramp to move further south and to move the left-side northbound exit to the right side.

The entire re-construction is slated to be finished in the second quarter of 2019.

Hang in there, Houston.
