As motorists gear-up for up to three years of construction in the Spaghetti Bowl area as part of the I-10 Connect project, the Texas Department of Transportation is rolling out several additional ways for motorists to stay informed of changing traffic conditions.
Next week, TxDOT will hold the first of its monthly community meetings at which members of the public can get updates on this project’s progress and upcoming traffic impacts related to I-10 Connect.
The first community meeting will be held from 5:30 to 7pm on Tuesday, April 2, 2019, in the Medical Education Building at Texas Tech University Health Science Center El Paso’s Paul L. Foster School of Medicine, corner of Rick Francis Street and Robert Brown Avenue.
Information will be presented in English and Spanish. Those in need of special accommodations should contact TxDOT at (915) 790-4340 by 5pm on Monday, April 1, 2019.
These meetings are just one of several ways TxDOT and the community can interact during this project, including the following:
- Bilingual Project Hotline – (855) 463-1010
- Website and email newsletter updates – i10connectelpaso.com.
- Facebook and Twitter – @i10connectEP
- Text message alerts will be available soon
I-10 connect officials say, “It will be especially important for members of the community to take full advantage of these communications tools as the project progresses and greatly impacts thousands of motorists on both sides of the border.”
So far closures have been used to install concrete barrier around project limits, close off lanes and begin the construction and demolition process.
Drivers are encouraged to register for text alerts and electronic newsletter distribution by visiting the project’s website.
