46-Hour complete closure of Alameda at US54 starts Saturday morning

To allow crews to build new ramps to Juárez as part of the I-10 Connect Project, parts of existing infrastructure must be removed.

As a result of overhead demolition of bridges, SH 20 (Alameda Avenue) will be closed to all pedestrians, cyclists and motorists at US 54 for approximately 46 hours this weekend.

Here’s a look at the El Paso area’s project closures for the week ahead; highlighted are some high impact closures and complete closures, along with hyperlinks to the projects.

Upcoming Long-Term Closures

While the exact date and duration of the following closures have not been established, motorists are encouraged to be aware of the following proposed long-term closures:

  • Ramp V, which connects southbound US 54 to US 62 (Paisano Drive), will close to all traffic so crews can temporarily open Gateway Boulevard South to two-way traffic. This temporary change is necessary to allow access to the Findley/Latta neighborhood during upcoming concrete paving work on Paisano.

  • All traffic leaving the Bridge of the Americas on northbound Interstate 110 will be required to turn right on US 62 (Paisano Drive). This temporary traffic change is necessary to allow crews to route southbound traffic on I-110 into the northbound lanes giving crews additional room to work on retaining walls.
