New I-69 ramp to be constructed at Spur 5

According to the 2016-2017 institutional research report, 81% of undergraduate students at UH commute to campus. However, the University has not been included in the process.

“The University is supportive of TxDOT projects that improve the flow of traffic in and around campus,” said Shawn Lindsey, Director of Media Relations. “Interstate projects such as this one impact a large number of different constituencies — the city, businesses, commuters, residents and schools. So it’s not surprising that the University has not been included in the TxDOT planning process.”

Though it is a major improvement, the work means seven months of construction detours for downtown-bound drivers, according to the Texas Department of Transportation. Crews will close Spur 5 at Scott Street starting at 9 p.m. Friday, so they can demolish the ramp parallel to I-45.
