    Officials closed the ramp from the outer loop of the Brookshire Freeway to Interstate 77 southbound in September.

    Traffic Team 9's Mark Taylor learned the ramp is scheduled to reopen the week of Jan. 28, if weather permits.

    Although the ramp reopening is a move in the right direction, with several road construction projects starting to intersect near uptown, drivers may not get much relief from traffic headaches.
