Connect10, TxDoT closures, detours and work for week of December 22nd

Here’s a look at the upcoming project closures for the week ahead. Highlighted below are some high impact closures and complete closure lists via hyperlinks are below as well.

Be safe if you’re traveling for the holidays and remember to plan while you can and get that safe ride home if needed from celebrations.

Don’t forget to follow them on Twitter at @TxDOTELP and like us on Facebook at @TxDOTElPaso.

 Holiday motorists will get a break from new major closures related to the I-10 Connect project. However, many long-term traffic impacts — including detours from I-10 to Juárez via the Spaghetti Bowl — will remain in place over the Holidays.

As holiday traffic increases, it’s especially important for motorists bound for Juárez to avoid cutting through neighborhoods and follow the marked detour which takes traffic on northbound US 54, uses the Pershing Drive Turnaround to southbound US 54.

While that detour may seem out of the way, it includes no traffic lights and parts were recently widened to better accommodate traffic.
