TxDot/Go10 Detours, Construction for Week of June 3rd

Crews on the Go10/TxDoT project are gearing up for busy June. For up-to-the-minute information, you can follow TxDoT on Twitter: Twitter or sign up for email alerts. For GO10 alerts, simply sign up online.

I-10 West at Sunland

Crews are planning to close I-10 West at Sunland Park (Exit 13) for 27 hours on a Sunday later this month. We haven’t nailed down a firm date yet, but it’s looking like June 17 (Father’s Day) or June 24.  Pay attention because this closure will result in changes to traffic lane patterns along I-10 West between Resler Drive and North Mesa Street.  We’ll provide you with an illustration of these coming changes next week.

Resler Exit

GO 10 engineers are talking about closing the Resler Drive westbound exit ramp; but, details are still developing. We don’t know when it will close (maybe the end of June) and we don’t know how long it will stay closed (it could be weeks).  The closure is necessary so crews can build the NEW Resler exit ramp. Despite the lack of details, we hope you appreciate this frigid closure forecast.

North Mesa Street

Brace yourselves. Sometime in the next couple of months, we will be closing half the lanes of North Mesa Street in both directions between Osborne Drive and Remcon Circle. This is the juggling act we’ve been telling you about since April; but, in case you haven’t heard, GO 10 needs to upgrade the pavement on North Mesa Street and connect new ramps and lanes. For motorists, it will mean varying lane closures, shifting traffic lane patterns, and changing detours (aka traffic juggling) for the rest of 2018.  See attached flyer.

Traffic therapy

Remember, we are in the home stretch for this project. In fact, we are aiming to be mostly out of your way by the end of this year. (GO 10’s official end date is April 2019.) But baby steps – here what’s scheduled for next week:

TxDoT/Go10 Closures/Detours for Week of April 8

A couple of high profile traffic developments to keep in mind with ongoing projects.  Starting later this month, work activities will increase on North Mesa Street (SH 20) between Osborne and Remcon.

After the Sunland flyover opens on April 30, crews will close the Sunland overpass and re-route traffic (click here to read more)

  • Work Zone Awareness Week starts Monday, but safety is a priority every day. Please remember to slow down, pay attention and expect the unexpected. Keep in mind more drivers are killed in work zone accidents than highway workers.

Next week’s scheduled closures are as follows:

LOCATION DURATION DESCRIPTION
North Mesa Daytime

April 9-13

9 am to 4 pm daily

 

·      North Mesa Street (SH 20) westbound will have a right lane closed between North Desert Boulevard and Osborne Drive.
