HARDY DOWNTOWN CONNECTOR
The 3.6-mile Downtown Connector will extend the Hardy Toll Road from its current southern end at the IH 610 North Loop into downtown Houston. When complete, the project will give commuters a direct 25-mile link between downtown Houston and destinations to the north including Bush Intercontinental Airport, The Woodlands and points in between. The Downtown Connector will allow drivers to bypass congestion at the IH 610 North Loop, IH 45 and US 59.
The proposed project includes:
Adding four managed express lanes (also known as max lanes) on I-45 from Beltway 8 North to downtown Houston, rebuilding main lanes and frontage roads, rerouting of I-45 in the downtown area to join I-10 on the north side of downtown and US 59/I-69 on the east side of downtown, removing the existing elevated I-45 roadway along the west and south sides of downtown, adding access to the west side of downtown via “Downtown Connectors” that would allow access to and from various downtown streets , realigning both I-10 and US 59/I-69 within the proposed project area to eliminate the current roadway curvature, adding four I-10 express lanes between I-45 and US 59/I-69.
