TxDoT Schedules Four Public Meeings for Input on ‘Reimagine I-10’ Project

TxDOT is conducting an advanced planning study for the I-10 Corridor from the New Mexico/Texas state line to FM 3380 (Aguilera International Highway) in Tornillo.

Four Reimagine I-10 public meetings are scheduled during this second series of public meetings. One public meeting is scheduled in each segment; each will take place from 5-7 p.m. and each will present the same information, in English and Spanish, in an open house format.

The Reimagine I-10 feasibility study covers 55 miles and includes more than 200 bridges and five U.S. and Mexico ports of entry. Due to the size of the corridor, it has been organized into four segments:

Northern Gateway: from the New Mexico State Line to Executive Center Blvd.

Downtown: from Executive Center Blvd. to US 54 (Patriot Freeway)

Airport: from US 54 to Loop 375 (Americas Interchange)

Southern Gateway: from Loop 375 (Americas Interchange) to FM 3380 (Aguilera International Highway).

Data from 2015 show traffic volume on the corridor is 195,000 vehicles per day, most on intercity travel. This study will plan for the future of the corridor, up to the year 2042.

Conceptual solutions presented for public input will include the removal of 35 ramps and relocation of 77; single-point urban interchanges (SPUI) and By-pass lanes at Artcraft/Paseo Del Norte, Hawkins and Zaragoza/George Dieter, reconfiguration of connectors to Downtown and additional lane capacity on I-10 main lanes.

The study started last summer, a final round of public meetings is planned for later this year and the recommended master plan is expected to be completed by the end of 2018.

Community members interested in learning more about the plans, but are not able to attend this last round of public meetings can view details and provide feedback online by visiting , keyword “Reimagine I10” or at


Map+Story: Overnight Lane Closures begin Sunday on Interstate 10

The Camino Real Regional Mobility Authority has coordinated with the Texas Department of Transportation to close one lane of Interstate 10 overnight for the next six weeks.

The lane closures are necesary as subcontractors for Paso del Norte Trackworks reinforce two overpasses which will carry the 4.8 mile streetcar line across the freeway.

Beginning on Sunday, January 29, 2017, the left lane of I-10 will be closed in both directions through Downtown El Paso. The lane closures will begin at 9 p.m. on Sundays through Thursdays for approximately six weeks. The lanes will re-open by 5 a.m.each day.

While work will be confined to the columns which support the Oregon Street and Stanton Street overpasses, lane restrictions will begin well in advance of the work zone to provide a safe work environment for crews. Eastbound lane restrictions on I-10 will begin near Schuster Avenue; Westbound lane restrictions on I-10 will begin near Cotton Street.

Crews will also place poles for the Overhead Catenary System (OCS) which will power the streetcars within the median of I-10 at Oregon and Stanton.

Beginning on Monday, January 30, 2017, Stanton Street will be reduced to a single northbound lane from Yandell Drive to Baltimore Drive as crews expand their work installing rail there.

Baltimore Drive, Robinson Avenue, University Avenue, Blanchard Avenue, Blacker Avenue, Hague Road, Crosby Avenue, Cliff Drive, and Rio Grande Avenue will be closed to thru traffic immediately west of Stanton Street.

North of Crosby, work will continue through mid-April; South of Crosby work will continue thru late May or early June.

Crews from Paso del Norte Trackworks continue their 24/7 work schedule laying rail and pouring concrete across Paisano Drive at Kansas Street and Santa Fe Street.

Paisano is scheduled to re-open to east-west traffic through Downtown on Tuesday, January 31, 2017. Kansas Street will re-open to southbound traffic at and Santa Fe Street will re-open to north-south traffic at this time.

As previously announced, Santa Fe Street will remain closed between Paisano Drive and Father Rahm Avenue as rail is laid there.

As work continues throughout the 4.8 mile route, the following traffic impacts will remain in place during the week of January 30, 2017:

Street Closures

  • Father Rahm Avenue between Santa Fe Street and Campbell Street
  • Franklin Avenue between Santa Fe Street and the mid-block alley between Mesa Street and Oregon Street
  • Oregon Street between Main Drive and Missouri Avenue
  • Rio Grande Avenue between El Paso Street and Oregon Street
  • Arizona Avenue between Mesa Street and Oregon Street

Lane Restrictions

  • Rolling lane restrictions on Oregon Street near the University of Texas at El Paso for OCS pole installation
  • Kansas Street between Franklin Avenue and Father Rahm Avenue
  • Oregon Street between Rio Grande Avenue and California Avenue
  • Santa Fe Street at Franklin Avenue

Work Zone Changes Planned for February

The following work zone changes will take place next month:

  • Southbound traffic on Kansas Street will shift to the right site of the street as crews resurface the existing travel lanes. San Antonio Avenue and Texas Avenue will close immediately east of Kansas Street to allow crews to complete concrete paving of those intersections.
  • Franklin Avenue will re-open between Santa Fe Street and the mid-block alley between Oregon Street and Mesa Street. Franklin will be reduced to a single eastbound lane between Oregon Street and Kansas Street; Stanton will close to thru traffic at Franklin.
