Go10, Connect10, TxDoT closures, detours for week of June 22

GO 10 has two more Sunday’s of 27-hour closures to go, including this Sunday, June 23.

Crosstown motorists are encouraged to use Loop 375 (Transmountain Road) this weekend as multiple 27-hour closures are planned on Interstate 10 in West and Central El Paso.

Go10 officials said, via an email release, “Thank you for your patience as crews push hard to finish roadwork by June 30th.”

After June 30th, crews will continue to work off the road for a couple of months to finish punch list items.

I-10 will be closed to eastbound and westbound traffic at US 54 from 3am on Sunday, June 23, until 6am on Monday, June 24, for the I-10 Connect Project. While thru traffic is encouraged to use alternate routes, the following marked detours will be in place for local traffic which must travel in the area during this 27-hour closure:

  • Eastbound I-10: All traffic will take Exit 22B (US 54/Alamogordo/Fort Bliss/Juárez) and travel north on US 54, take Exit 23 (Cassidy Road), take Exit 22B (Pershing Drive), use the newly-widened turnaround at Pershing Drive, re-enter southbound US 54 and follow signs to their destination.
  • Westbound I-10: All traffic will take Exit 22B (US 54/Alamogordo/Juárez/Fort Bliss) and travel north on US 54.
  • Also closed at this time: Ramp C which connects northbound US 54 to westbound I-10; Ramp L which connects Gateway Boulevard West to westbound I-10 at Raynolds; and the on-ramp which connects Gateway Boulevard East to eastbound I-10 at Loop 478 (Copia Street).

 

The simultaneous eastbound and westbound closures are necessary so crews have room to safely lift a steel cage and place it into a shaft which has been drilled in the median of I-10. Next, they’ll fill the shaft with concrete to support a column for a new direct connector ramp from southbound US 54 to Juárez.

 

A 27-hour closure of westbound I-10 is also scheduled from 3am on Sunday, June 23, until 6am on Monday, June 24, for the Go 10 Project on the Westside. Westbound I-10 will be closed at Schuster Avenue for that project.

 

Elsewhere on the I-10 Connect Project, crews are making progress on two bridges over US 62 (Paisano Drive). The following closures are necessary to allow crews to place the first bridge girders as part of this project at that location:
