Americas Interchange 51% Complete

The latest newsletter from the Americas Interchange website states that construction is 51% complete with no change to the scheduled completion date of January 2013.
According to the newsletter, 49 out of 93 columns have been completed and 37 of 363 concrete beams have been placed. Motorists will begin to use the newly constructed Gateway East in mid-March, and the northbound 375 Exit 44A ramp will be permanently closed later this month in order to begin construction of that direct connector. Vehicles will have to use the North Loop exit in order to access I-10.
Newly released images show that the majority of work has concentrated on the South 375 to West I-10 direct connector.
