​HOUSTON - Workers will soon remedy one of Houston's biggest traffic bottlenecks, but not without a few months of pain for drivers—even as one of the region's biggest freeway redesign projects looms over the downtown area. 

The ramp from eastbound Allen Parkway to southbound Interstate 45 will close July 9 for more than two months. 

As part of the project, estimated to cost $3.6 million, the work closes the ramp and downtown distribution system that lets traffic transition from the southbound Fwy.​ to Dallas, Bagby and Pierce—some of the most common exits for downtown-bound drivers.

During the construction, TxDOT and Houston officials said drivers can travel across downtown and access southbound I-45 at Jefferson. 

The loss of the exits is expected to lead a lot of travelers to exit at McKinney.
