TxDoT/Go10 Closures, Detours for Week of April 22nd

Drivers that use the Sunland Park Interchange and I-10 in the area will experience a traffic switch, lane reductions and multiple weekend closures in May as construction advances on TxDOT’s GO 10 project.

Traffic Switch/27-Hour Closure

Crews will close Sunland Park Drive from Mesa Hills Drive to Doniphan Drive in both directions – along with all ramps at Sunland Park – from Sunday, April 29 at 3 a.m. to Monday, April 30 at 6.

The closure is needed to prepare for a traffic shift. During the 27-hour closure, motorists will be allowed access to businesses along Sunland Park Drive. Police officers and road signs will be in place to help drivers navigate the closure. Through traffic should avoid the Sunland Park corridor.

The traffic shift starts April 30 when crews close the Sunland Park overpass and shift traffic onto the newly constructed turnaround bridge parallel to the overpass for travel. The shift onto the turnaround bridge will mean fewer through lanes:  two northbound lanes and one southbound lane.

To assist drivers during this shift, the new Sunland Park flyover will be open. They can also use the westbound on ramp to I-10.

The closure and traffic shift will last at least five months. During that time crews will demolish and replace the Sunland Park Drive overpass. The new overpass will have an increased clearance height and additional lanes.

Extended Closures

Drivers will be detoured onto the I-10 eastbound and westbound frontage road ramps.

57-Hour Weekend #2

The following weekend, I-10 will close so crews can continue the demolition and begin to remove massive steel girders from the old Sunland Park flyover ramp.

A third 57-hour weekend closure may be needed if work does not progress as planned. Progress could be impeded by factors such as wind.  If a third 57-hour closure is needed, it will be Friday, May 18 from 9 p.m. – Monday, May 21 at 6 a.m.
