TxDoT/GO10 Closures, Detours for Week of April 1st

Work at Sunland Park continues. The flyover to I-10 East is still closed and work to demolish the old ramp and prepare for the new ramp’s opening on April 30th is on track.

As mentioned last week, once the new ramp opens crews will then shut down the Sunland Park overpass, between the two traffic lights, at the Sunland/I-10 intersection. The overpass will be demolished and replaced.

Next up: North Mesa. Work here will ramp up in the next few weeks, with major improvements planned, including replacing pavement in the area and constructing Texas turnaround lanes.

Once work is complete, the overpass will have been completely replaced, and will feature a full bridge span across North Mesa Street free of support columns in the median.

Sunland Park FLYOVER




March 19-April 30


·      The Sunland Park Drive flyover entrance ramp to I-10 Eastbound remains inaccessible. The flyover will stay closed until April 30.


Detour:  To enter I-10 Eastbound, follow the detour signs to the Paisano Drive entrance ramp.


Crews are working to open the all-new Sunland Park flyover ramp.


Sunland Park OVERPASS



Starting April 30 and until further notice


·      The Sunland Park Drive overpass that allows traffic to get cross I-10 will be closed for at least five months.


Detour:  Traffic will be detoured onto the newly constructed turnaround bridge located alongside the closed overpass.


Crews will be demolishing and reconstructing the closed overpass.



North Mesa



April 2-13

Weekdays only

9 am to 4 pm


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


NOTE:  In the next three weeks, crews plan to increase their presence along North Mesa Street (SH 20) between Osborne Drive and Remcon Circle.  The pavement in that section of North Mesa Street (SH 20) needs to be replaced, per GO 10’s design plans.  The work will mean motorists can expect increased lane closures, periodic shifts in lane patterns, detours, and increased traffic congestion for nine months.  GO 10 asks for your patience as crews work to be finished by December 2018.


North Desert



April 2-6

9 am to 4 pm daily


·      North Desert Boulevard will have a left lane closed between North Mesa Street (SH 20) and Thorn Avenue. One lane will always remain open. Access to the I-10 Westbound entrance ramp will be open.


Sunland Park



April 2 and 3

9 pm each night to 6 am each morning


·      Entry to I-10 Eastbound will not be permitted from Sunland Park Drive nor from Paisano Drive.

·      Crockett Street access to the Paisano Drive entrance ramp to I-10 Eastbound will be closed.


Detour:  Motorists should use an alternate entrance ramp or follow the detour signs to the Executive Center Boulevard entrance ramp.


I-10 EAST @ NORTH MESA Overnight

Sunday, April 15

9 pm to 6 am


·         I-10 Eastbound will close completely between North Mesa Street (SH 20) and Resler Drive.


Detour:  Motorist will exit at North Mesa Street (Exit 11) and follow the detour signs to re-enter I-10 Eastbound using the Sunland Park Drive entrance ramp.


Crews will implement a change that places I-10 Eastbound traffic onto the paralleling eastbound collector-distributor (CD) lanes.  By 6 am on Monday, April 16, motorists will be traveling on the CD lanes for approximately a half mile between the North Mesa Street overpass and Resler Drive. The speed limit will be reduced to 45 mph in this half-mile section.  The traffic switch will be in place for several months while crews work on the main lanes of I-10 Eastbound.


TxDoT: New ‘Braided Ramp’ Project on City’s Eastside to Begin in January

A new Texas Department of Transportation project aimed at improving eastside mall traffic will get started with the New Year.

The Braided Ramps project on Interstate 10 westbound from Viscount to Airway will improve capacity, operation, circulation and safety along I-10.

“This construction is another component of our operational improvements along IH-10,” said TxDOT District Engineer Bob Bielek, DPA, P.E. “These particular improvements are significant in making access to highly trafficked shopping areas safer.”

Construction crews working on the $16 million-dollar project will start work after the holiday season on January 2, 2018 and will continue until November.

The proposed project includes: ramp reconfigurations and frontage road improvements; intersection improvements at Airway Boulevard, Hawkins Boulevard, and Viscount Boulevard; conversion of westbound entrance and exit ramps between Hawkins and Viscount boulevards to braided ramps and the addition of an auxiliary lane to westbound I-10 main lanes between Airway and Viscount boulevards.

The project also includes new pavement markings, signs, illumination and computerized transportation management system.
Impact on traffic is expected to be minimal as the work will be in progress behind barriers in the area.

TxDoT officials ask that motorists “take extra caution around work crews and be aware the shoulder on the road will not be accessible for the duration of the project.”

All proposed work is anticipated to occur within the existing TxDoT right of way and would not result in commercial or residential displacements.

Temporary lane closure for Mesa @ Resler starts today

There will be lane closures along Mesa Street at its intersection with Resler Drive starting Monday, January 11th, 2016.

 The lane closures are expected to last about a month and are necessary to allow crews to modify the elevation of the roadway in some sections of the intersection.  The work schedule may be modified due to weather or other unforeseen events.

Drivers are highly encouraged to seek alternative routes during their daily commute in order to avoid the construction area. Proper traffic control measures will be in place to direct the traveling public through this area throughout the duration of the project.

The lane closure schedule may be modified due to weather or other unforeseen events.
