Connect10, TxDoT closures, detours and work for week of December 22nd

Here’s a look at the upcoming project closures for the week ahead. Highlighted below are some high impact closures and complete closure lists via hyperlinks are below as well.

Be safe if you’re traveling for the holidays and remember to plan while you can and get that safe ride home if needed from celebrations.

Don’t forget to follow them on Twitter at @TxDOTELP and like us on Facebook at @TxDOTElPaso.

 Holiday motorists will get a break from new major closures related to the I-10 Connect project. However, many long-term traffic impacts — including detours from I-10 to Juárez via the Spaghetti Bowl — will remain in place over the Holidays.

As holiday traffic increases, it’s especially important for motorists bound for Juárez to avoid cutting through neighborhoods and follow the marked detour which takes traffic on northbound US 54, uses the Pershing Drive Turnaround to southbound US 54.

While that detour may seem out of the way, it includes no traffic lights and parts were recently widened to better accommodate traffic.

TxDoT invites residents to Texas-Mexico Border Transportation Master Plan meeting

Community members from around the El Paso area are invited to participate in TxDOT’s Texas-Mexico Border Transportation Master Plan (BTMP) meeting this week.

The master plan will identify the cross-border challenges of moving people and goods and will include analysis of existing transportation systems — roadway, transit, pedestrian, pipeline, air, rail, ports and waterways.

During the session, attendees will discuss the BTMP goals and objectives, review the data collection received to-date, and gather insight on transportation issues/opportunities in the El Paso region.

In 2017, Texas traded approximately $187.5 billion with Mexico, more than three times the amount that Texas trades with China, the state’s second largest trading partner.

The BTMP will analyze current and future transportation and will include a prioritized list of transportation investment strategies that improves the efficient movement of people and goods across the border and supports binational, state, regional and local economic competitiveness.

Those not able to attend the public meeting can learn more and also submit comments online by clicking here.

The public meeting will be held from 5-7  p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 12, 2019 at the Double Tree by Hilton El Paso Downtown/City Center, located at 600 North El Paso St.

The final BTMP report is expected in December 2020.

TxDOT Crews ready for Winter Season

TxDOT El Paso District maintenance crews are not waiting for the first day of Winter to get ready for those potentially freezing conditions.

The TxDOT El Paso District covers six counties (Brewster, Culberson, El Paso, Hudspeth, Jeff Davis and Presidio) with 126 roadway maintenance employees, including maintenance support technicians, using 53 snow plows and 10 brine applicator trucks.

Crews have been preparing for the upcoming cold season by meeting with staff, neighboring district and counties; ensuring needed winterizing and treatment material is stock piled; testing and installing all winter equipment; making sure radio communication is in place and coordinating personnel schedules.

“The safety for our employees and the traveling public is our priority,” said TxDOT El Paso District Engineer Tomas Treviño. “We want to be proactive as it is critical to be ready for inclement conditions and it is safer to pretreat roads ahead of the storm.”

Crews winterize roads by applying brine, a salt and water mixture, ahead of freezing temperatures. It is a fast moving operation that has minimal impacts to the traveling public.

Drivers will see a three-vehicle moving convoy with brine treatment signs and should stay away from the trucks. Should drivers get brine on their vehicle, they should rinse the affected area with water.

Teams consider different factors ahead of winterizing roads including moisture, temperature, area of the District being affected, response capability of the affected maintenance sections (which may require mobilization of crews from other parts within the District or neighboring districts) and the National Weather Service forecast.

While all bridges will freeze before the pavement, there are a few locations in the six-county region that are most critical and most challenging for crews to maintain, especially along the 186 miles of the IH-10 corridor.

“The IH-10/IH-20 spilt is a remote area and a long distance for El Paso and Odessa maintenance sections to reach and the Pine Springs, Guadalupe Mountains area is a steep slope that gets very icy due to the high altitudes,” said Treviño.

As always during a winter event, the traveling public should only travel if absolutely necessary.

Due to the size of the TxDOT El Paso District and the allocation of resources, roadways in the six-county area are prioritized during an event with I-10 taking top priority followed by high travel, high population US and state highways in the rural counties that connect area cities to that region’s only hospital in Alpine.

Maintenance crews will be conducting calibration activities on equipment November 5 and 6.

46-Hour complete closure of Alameda at US54 starts Saturday morning

To allow crews to build new ramps to Juárez as part of the I-10 Connect Project, parts of existing infrastructure must be removed.

Here’s a look at the El Paso area’s project closures for the week ahead; highlighted are some high impact closures and complete closures, along with hyperlinks to the projects.

TxDoT, El Paso Police, El Paso Electric, Socorro ISD Launch Pedestrian Safety Campaign

The Texas Department of Transportation El Paso District is partnering with the El Paso Police Department, the El Paso Electric Company, and the Socorro Independent School District for a pedestrian safety campaign launching ahead of Halloween and the end of daylight saving time.

The campaign, which was initiated last year, consists of bilingual educational material and the distribution of thousands of reflective slap bands.

“We have had 21 pedestrian traffic related deaths in the City of El Paso this year, compared to 21 at this time last year,” said El Paso Police Assistant Chief Victor Zarur. “We believe education and awareness can reduce or eliminate future fatalities. While the driver has been at fault in a few cases, the majority of our pedestrian deaths this year are a result of pedestrians not crossing at appropriate locations.”

About half of those deaths have occurred on high speed roadways like I-10 and US 54, prompting additional concern.

“One death on our roadways is one too many,” said TxDOT El Paso District Engineer Tomas Treviño. “High speed roadways like I-10, US 54, and Loop 375 aren’t places for walking or crossing. Things can change in an instant while we are driving. Everyone always needs to be alert and pay attention, eliminate distractions like cell phones and listening devices and take extra precautions at night.”

Pedestrians are encouraged to always use a crosswalk and use sidewalks if available. It is illegal to walk in the road if a sidewalk is nearby.

If there isn’t a sidewalk, pedestrians should walk on the left side of the road facing traffic, as far away from traffic as possible.

“Safety comes first’ is a common phrase and a daily practice at El Paso Electric,” said El Paso Electric Interim Chief Executive Officer Adrian Rodriguez. “As our core value, it is our priority to ensure the safety of our employees and those we serve, and we are proud to partner with TxDOT, EPPD, and SISD in sharing this important message.”

In addition, drivers involved in a crash or who experience their vehicle stalling should remember to move their ride to the side if possible, turn on their hazard lights, and call for help.

If drivers are stalled on a main lane, they should turn on their hazard lights, stay buckled in their vehicle and call 9-1-1.

With the sun setting earlier and Halloween around the corner, everyone is especially reminded of child pedestrian safety.

“Our number one priority is to provide safe and supportive learning environments, which includes before and after school when our students and families are on the roads and sidewalks,” said SISD Superintendent José Espinoza, Ed.D. “I encourage everyone to be highly vigilant around our schools and at peak traffic times to ensure our pedestrians are safe. Team SISD is proud to be working with TXDOT, EPPD and EP Electric to Keep SISD Safe.”

TxDoT invites residents to discuss Texas Transportation Plan 2050

TxDoT officials will be holding a public meeting in El Paso to discuss the future of transportation in Texas.

On October 23, El Paso area residents will have their chance to share thoughts and comments on TxDoT’s Texas Transportation Plan 2050, or TTP 2050.

TTP 2050 will guide TxDOT’s planning and programming for the next 30 years and set long-range goals for all transportation modes — roadways, transit, pedestrian, bicycle and freight.

The plan will also address some of the state’s biggest transportation challenges including a growing and aging population; urbanization; emerging transportation technologies (such as driverless vehicles); and limited funding.

The public is invited to provide comments in person, online or by mail. Persons with disabilities who want to attend a public meeting but need appropriate accommodations can contact Casey Dusza at 512- 486-5149 or casey.dusza@txdot.gov three business days prior to the meeting.

Members of the public who cannot attend a meeting, but who would like to receive information or submit comments can email TTP_2050@txdot.gov or call the toll free messaging center at 1-855-TEXAS50 (839-2750).

All meeting materials will be available at www.txdot.gov using the keyword search “TTP 2050.”

Online surveys will close on Friday, November 15, 2019 and public comments will be accepted throughout the development of the TTP 2050.

Written comments can be submitted via email at TTP_2050@txdot.gov or by USPS mail to:

Trevino named new District Engineer for El Paso TxDoT

Officials with the Texas Department of Transportation announced the appointment of Tomas Trevino, P.E., as the new El Paso District Engineer, effective July 10, 2019.

Mr. Trevino will oversee the planning, designing, building, operation and maintenance of the state transportation system for the six-county El Paso District in his new role.

“I am excited to work with the employees of the El Paso District, to develop the needed transportation projects in the El Paso District,” said Trevino. “I also look forward to working with our local partners and contracting community to deliver these transportation needs in a timely manner.”

Trevino comes to El Paso from the Corpus Christi District, where he has served as Deputy District Engineer. His current position includes managing the district’s Alternative Delivery Program, with oversight on the new Harbor Bridge Design-Build Project.

“Tomas brings a wealth of knowledge and leadership experience to the position,” said TxDOT Director of District Operations Randy Hopmann. “He has been involved with various committees across the state and his role in the Area Engineer training class these past few years demonstrated his commitment to developing our employees and the future of the Department.”

A 27-year veteran of the Department, Tomas has worked his entire TxDOT career in the Corpus Christi District. During his tenure, he has served in many roles for the Corpus Christi District, including Geometric Design Engineer, Alice Area Engineer, and Director of Operations.

As Director of Operations he led the Hurricane Harvey response for the district and oversaw clean-up efforts bringing safety and hope to communities along the coast.

After earning his bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering from Texas A&I University in 1991, Tomas had a short stint with the Washington Department of Transportation in Seattle, but he moved back to Texas in 1992 and began work with TxDOT’s Corpus Christi District as an Engineering Assistant for the Sinton Area office.

Public invited to comment on TxDoT’s Transportation Plan

El Pasoans and residents from around the county are invited to comment on the Texas Department of Transportation’s (TxDOT) Unified Transportation Plan (UTP).

“Public comment is critical for planning across the state, but especially important in the El Paso District. We are the largest geographical TxDOT district, spanning 21,700 square miles, said TxDOT Director of Transportation Planning and Development Eddie Valtier, P.E. “The needs of our district vary – not only because of our dual urban/rural characteristics, but also because of the varying geographical characteristics across our six counties.”

A public meeting is scheduled for Thursday, July 11, starting at 3 p.m. at TxDOT El Paso District Headquarters 13301 Gateway Boulevard West.

The Unified Transportation Program (UTP) is TxDOT’s ten-year programming document to authorize and guide transportation project development and construction on Texas’ intermodal transportation network. It is updated, and adopted by the Texas Transportation Commission annually.

The UTP includes funding strategies and projects to maintain and preserve the existing transportation system and taxpayer investments. The UTP also includes funding strategies and projects to construct transportation infrastructure.

The UTP is neither a budget nor a guarantee that projects will or can be built. However, it is a critical tool in guiding transportation project development within the long-term planning context.

Members of the public interested in participating, but not able to attend the meeting in person, have the opportunity to join the meeting online, by phone or provide their comments via mail

Go10, Connect10, TxDoT closures, detours for week of June 30/July 1

Here’s a look at the region’s project closures for the week ahead. These include the last 27-hour closure for our GO10 Project THIS weekend.

I-10 will be in its final design and open to traffic by July 1st.  Probably the biggest benefit will be seen on I-10 West on approach to the Sunland Park/Resler exit ramp (exit 13). Drivers will find three exit lanes will be available to them, instead of just one.

Additionally, we have no closures scheduled for July 1-7; however by Monday, July 8, it is back to work. For a couple of months, GO 10 crews will be finishing final checklist items, like cable barrier, drainage, rock walls, clean up, etc.

Checklist items may require road closures to keep everyone safe; but, the closures should be less disruptive.

Nightly closures of Ramp F that connects westbound I-10 to Cd. Juarez will continue for several weeks. Crews on the I-10 Connect Project are making progress on two bridges over US 62 (Paisano Drive), those closures will continue as well.

Go10, Connect10, TxDoT closures, detours for week of June 22

GO 10 has two more Sunday’s of 27-hour closures to go, including this Sunday, June 23.

Crosstown motorists are encouraged to use Loop 375 (Transmountain Road) this weekend as multiple 27-hour closures are planned on Interstate 10 in West and Central El Paso.

Go10 officials said, via an email release, “Thank you for your patience as crews push hard to finish roadwork by June 30th.”

After June 30th, crews will continue to work off the road for a couple of months to finish punch list items.

I-10 will be closed to eastbound and westbound traffic at US 54 from 3am on Sunday, June 23, until 6am on Monday, June 24, for the I-10 Connect Project. While thru traffic is encouraged to use alternate routes, the following marked detours will be in place for local traffic which must travel in the area during this 27-hour closure:

  • Eastbound I-10: All traffic will take Exit 22B (US 54/Alamogordo/Fort Bliss/Juárez) and travel north on US 54, take Exit 23 (Cassidy Road), take Exit 22B (Pershing Drive), use the newly-widened turnaround at Pershing Drive, re-enter southbound US 54 and follow signs to their destination.
  • Westbound I-10: All traffic will take Exit 22B (US 54/Alamogordo/Juárez/Fort Bliss) and travel north on US 54.
  • Also closed at this time: Ramp C which connects northbound US 54 to westbound I-10; Ramp L which connects Gateway Boulevard West to westbound I-10 at Raynolds; and the on-ramp which connects Gateway Boulevard East to eastbound I-10 at Loop 478 (Copia Street).

 

The simultaneous eastbound and westbound closures are necessary so crews have room to safely lift a steel cage and place it into a shaft which has been drilled in the median of I-10. Next, they’ll fill the shaft with concrete to support a column for a new direct connector ramp from southbound US 54 to Juárez.

 

A 27-hour closure of westbound I-10 is also scheduled from 3am on Sunday, June 23, until 6am on Monday, June 24, for the Go 10 Project on the Westside. Westbound I-10 will be closed at Schuster Avenue for that project.

 

Elsewhere on the I-10 Connect Project, crews are making progress on two bridges over US 62 (Paisano Drive). The following closures are necessary to allow crews to place the first bridge girders as part of this project at that location:

 

Monday, June 24, 7pm to 6am

  • US 62 (Paisano Drive) will be closed to all traffic between Gateway Boulevard North and Gateway Boulevard South.
  • DETOURS: Westbound traffic will turn right on Gateway Boulevard North, left on SH 20 (Alameda Avenue) and left on Loop 478 (Copia Street), before returning to US 62 (Paisano Drive). Eastbound traffic will turn right on San Marcial Street, left on Delta Drive, and left on Boone Street before returning to US 62 (Paisano Drive).
