Traffic Delay Alert:
Please note that the Allen Parkway entrance ramp to IH45 South will be closed for reconstruction from July 8 through the end of the year. This entrance ramp is located on Allen Parkway inbound, just west of Sam Houston Park and the ramp closure is expected to cause traffic delays near The Heritage Society (THS). If approaching THS from the west, consider using Memorial Dr. as an alternate route to avoid delays.
