Connect10, TxDoT closures, detours for Week of September 13

Among the other road projects this weekend and week,, El Paso Electric (EPE) will be transferring existing power lines that stretch across I-10 Freeway from an older, wooden pole to a new, steel pole as part of an overall transmission pole replacement initiative in east-central El Paso.

The pole replacement will take place in the area of 11045 Gateway Boulevard West (Denny’s Diner) at the intersection of Lomaland Drive. For the safety of the public and the EPE contractor crews, EPE will be requiring a complete closure of I-10 Freeway in both directions between the Lee Trevino and Yarbrough Drives’ exits. Both Gateways (East and West) will be closed between Lomaland and Yarbrough Drives.

The I-10 Freeway and accompanying road closures will take place this Sunday, September 13, 2020 from 6:00 a.m. to 10 a.m. El Paso Police will be on site to assist with the closures and to help traffic flow.
