The Jefferson Viaduct returns to northbound traffic only on Wednesday, Sept. 3, the same day the Houston Street Viaduct reopens to southbound only traffic.

Work on the streetcar tracks over the 102-year-old Houston Street Viaduct is complete, and the line from Union Station to Methodist hospital is expected to open in March. The historic viaduct closed to traffic in March 2013 for bridge repairs and streetcar line construction.

The barricaded bike lane on Jefferson will remain open. Workers are expected to begin restriping the Jefferson bridge on Monday, Sept. 1.
