Connect 10, TxDoT project detours, closures for week of May 3rd

Here’s a look at the project closures for the week ahead for the Connect10 project in East-Central El Paso and TxDoT projects area wide.  Highlighted are significant closures, and complete closure lists via hyperlinks are included below.

Intermittent alternating closures on Durazno Avenue and Rosa Avenue will continue between Uva Place and Bowie Street next week as crews continue placing pre-cast concrete bridge deck panels on a new direct connector ramp which will connect southbound US 54 to the Bridge of the Americas.

The closures will not be continuous; both streets will not be closed simultaneously.

The exact dimensions of each precast panel varies, but an average size panel is 8 feet by 5½ feet. The panels weight in at about 2,100 pounds each. To lift the massive panels into place, crews have brought in a 160 foot crane which will place the panels on to the new ramp which will be approximately 75 feet above the driving surface of Interstate 10.

Placement of deck panels is the fourth of roughly seven steps needed to build an overpass Click here for video of recent work placing deck panels on the ramp.
