TxDoT/Go10/i-10 Connect Work, Detours for Week of March 17

Here’s a look at the road project closures for the week ahead.

With the I-10 Connect project is underway, ramp closures continue as crews install concrete barrier to secure the work area. We saw the first long term closure this week along with impacts to international traffic. The Full list is below. Drivers can sign up for alerts on: here, or they can also follow the project on social media platforms.

PLAN AHEAD: The North Mesa westbound entrance ramp to I-10 will close on March 17 until further notice while crews rebuild the ramp.

  • The North Mesa entrance ramp to I-10 Westbound will close March 17 and will remain closed for approximately three weeks. We are aiming to open the ramp on April 7.
  • The Resler exit ramp from I-10 Westbound could open by the end of March. Crews are aiming for March 29.
  • I-10 Westbound will close completely at Executive Center for a 27-hour period on Saturday, March 23. We usually conduct 27-hour closures on a Sunday; but, not this time.

Crews will soon begin major construction work on the I-10 Connect Project in Central El Paso, but they have at least one more week of setting up temporary concrete barriers to protect motorists and construction crews.

While work will continue each day next week, motorists should pay special attention to the overnight closures which are scheduled on Tuesday, March 19, and Wednesday, March 20. Those nights include the following impacts:

  • A complete one-night closure of US 54 between Loop 375 and the Yandell Drive overpass.
  • A complete one-night closure of Ramp D linking southbound US 54 to eastbound I-10.
  • When Ramp D re-opens, it will be reduced to one lane for several months.

UPDATE: First look at TxDOT ‘Pick’ Project at UTEP; Work to Continue during May

The Texas Department of Transportation plans to temporarily close some access points to Interstate 10 near The University of Texas at El Paso starting Friday, May 5, 2017, as crews begin to erect the much-anticipated “Buried Pick” monuments.

Employees will work from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. May 5 to install the artwork adjacent to UTEP’s S-3 parking lot.

The setup of the other pick along the eastbound lanes across from the S-4 parking lot will be done overnight on Monday, May 8.

In anticipation of the May 5 project, TxDOT will barricade the left two lanes of the Schuster Avenue off-ramp that leads to the University Avenue roundabout. Motorists may use the off-ramp’s right lane to get to campus.

The agency also will block the University Avenue flyover eastbound lanes at the roundabout.

On May 8, there will be a complete closure of the eastbound I-10 lanes from Executive Center Drive through the Downtown exit from 9 p.m. until 5 a.m. the next morning.

The two pickaxe art pieces will be set on steel and concrete bases. The pick handles will be set at a 75-degree angle. They will be about 40 feet tall, 25 feet long and 12 feet wide.

The letters U-T-E-P will be 3-1/2 feet tall and set in both sides of the axe handle. The letters will be backlit with LEDs.

Additional closures will be needed starting May 15 as crews begin to place native stone

boulders around the new pick adjacent to the S-3 lot.

This work will last eight to 10 working days and the roads will be barricaded the same as the installation. The barricades will be removed at the end of each work day.

Motorists who use the westbound I-10 Schuster exit also should know that there will be some road work on Sun Bowl Drive between Schuster and University.

Northbound traffic on Sun Bowl will be limited to one lane for a sewer line enhancement that is part of the Interdisciplinary Research Building project.

University and TxDOT officials ask motorists to slow down and exercise caution in the construction zone.
