Video+Story: TxDoT Schedules Public Hearing on Upcoming ‘I-10 Connect’ Project

The TxDOT El Paso District will be holding a public hearing next week, regarding the upcoming I-10 Connect project.

“I-10 Connect is a critical component in our local highway system,” said El Paso District Engineer Bob Bielek. “It will improve mobility and address congestion on the existing roadway network. We have all seen I-110 congestion as vehicles head into Juarez. This project addresses the mobility issues and also addresses air quality and safety concerns brought up by the community regarding commercial traffic impacting the surrounding neighborhoods by eliminating access to the Port of Entry from Paisano.”

The proposed project consists of constructing direct connectors, ramps, and auxiliary lanes and widening existing ramps and direct connectors between I-10, I-110, United States Highway (US) 54, and Loop 375 (Cesar Chavez Border Highway).

TxDoT officials add that the proposed project would “improve mobility and address congestion on the existing roadway network.”

During the hearing, the community will hear about the planned improvements and will be able to comment on the proposed project. Displays will be available for viewing at 5 p.m. with the formal presentation starting at 6 p.m.

The hearing will be conducted in English, but a Spanish interpreter will be present.

Unlike a public meeting, a public hearing is held after project location and design studies are developed and are held to gather community comments from all interested parties for the official public record prior to a final decision.

The meeting is scheduled for Monday, July 30 at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center Medical Education Building, located at 5001 El Paso Drive.

TxDoT To Hold Meetings on Loop 375 Frontage Roads, Northeast Parkway

Community members are invited to participate in two upcoming TxDOT meetings in the El Paso District.

The first is a public hearing on the proposed improvements to Loop 375 from Farm-to-Market (FM) 76 (North Loop Drive) to the Zaragoza Port of Entry (POE) on July 25. The other is a public meeting on the proposed Northeast Parkway July 26.

A public hearing is held after project location and design studies are developed and are held to gather community comments from all interested parties for the official public record prior to a final decision.

A public meeting is held throughout the planning process and is intended to present information, exchange ideas and gather input from the public on the need for, and possible alternatives to, a project.

Loop 375 Frontage Roads Configuration Public Hearing  |  Wednesday, July 25

Del Valle High School, 5p.m., presentation at 6 p.m.

The public hearing on the Loop 375 frontage roads will take place on Wednesday July 25, at Del Valle High School, 950 Bordeaux Drive. Displays will be available for viewing at 5 p.m. with the formal presentation at 6 p.m. The purpose of the hearing is to provide information about the proposed project and gather input from the public.

The 2.4-mile long project is intended to improve mobility and reduce congestion by extending frontage roads across the Union Pacific Railroad (UPRR) and reconfiguring ramps. The existing Loop 375 frontage roads generally consist of three lanes in each direction, with two 14-foot-wide lanes and one 12-foot-wide lane.

The proposed improvements would extend the frontage roads over the UPRR just north of the Alameda Avenue (State Highway [SH] 20) and Loop 375 intersections and reconfigure ramps in both the north and southbound directions between FM 76 and the Zaragoza Port of Entry.

The public hearing will be conducted in English, but a Spanish translator will be present.

Northeast Parkway Public Meeting  |  Thursday, July 26  |  Tom Lea Elementary, 5-7 p.m.

The public meeting on the proposed Northeast Parkway is set for Thursday, July 26 from 5-7 p.m. at Tom Lea Elementary located at 4851 Marcus Uribe Drive.

The proposed Northeast Parkway is planned as new location four-lane facility, including grade separations, interchanges and bicycle and pedestrian accommodations.

The proposed project would be constructed in two phases, Phase 1 being the construction of a Super 2 facility – a two lane rural highway with periodic passing lanes. The purpose of the proposed project is to address regional system linkage and system capacity by providing an alternate route to I-10. The project would complete a route around the northeast side of El Paso suitable for truck and other through traffic, diverting traffic from the city center.

Preliminary project exhibits will be available for public viewing. The maps and drawings reflecting the project location and geometric design will also be displayed.

The meeting is open house format and attendees are encouraged to come at their own convenience.

TxDoT: City’s First Flashing Yellow Signal Now Operational

Far-East El Paso drivers now have an additional light to help them drive safer, as the city’s first flashing yellow signal is now operational. The signal is located on Alameda at Walmart, near Loop 375.

It has a four section signal head that includes four arrows: steady green for protected left turns; steady yellow to have drivers prepare to stop; red for stop, and flashing yellow to let drivers know left turns are allowed, but they must yield to oncoming traffic.

“El Paso is the last Texas metropolitan area to implement a signal of this type,” said TxDOT El Paso District Engineer Bob Bielek. “It is important that we phase into the state and national standards as we begin new projects. Most importantly, research has shown that this new signal is safer, more efficient and a more consistent approach for left-turn lanes than traditional signals.”

Flashing yellow arrow left-turn signals are a new standard for signals. Left hand turns have historically been identified as one of the most challenging actions a driver can undertake.

Left turn signals have been designed to let drivers know when they can safely turn across oncoming traffic, but the wide variety to types of signals used across the country can be confusing.

The addition is part of TxDOT’s Alameda project that involves operational, pedestrian and drainage improvements on Alameda from Loop 375 (Americas Ave.) to Presa. The project started last summer and is expected to be complete in spring 2019.

This new flashing yellow signal is the first of three that are part of the project. Intersections at Alameda and Carnes and Alameda and Presa will have them in the future.

TxDOT maintains signals at 54 intersections outside city limits. This flashing yellow signal was installed by TxDOT, but will be maintained by The City of El Paso.

TxDoT/Go10 Closures, Detours for Week of June 17

If Resler Drive is your usual I-10 exit, then pay attention – crews are exploring ways to avoid closing the Resler Drive exit ramp for several weeks starting sometime this month or early next month.

Officials say, “If there is no way to avoid it, the goal will be to restore the exit ramp before the new school year starts. Be prepared: starting considering your alternate routes.”

TxDOT, Walmart and EPPD Partner for Safety Seat Checks

The Texas Department of Transportation El Paso District is launching a new partnership this week with Walmart and the El Paso Police Department.  Under the collaboration, the group will provide child car seat inspections at local Walmart superstore locations.

“This is the first time we have joined forces with Walmart,” said TxDOT Traffic Safety Specialist Monica O’Kane. “The partnership enhances our outreach and allows us to leverage our resources and help more people.”

Walmart Market Asset Production Manager Elsa Garcia says the agency cooperation aligns with Walmart’s mission to work as a team and give back to the communities they serve.

“Our children are our future and keeping them safe is one of our community priorities,” said Garcia. “We invite our customers to join us at a car seat event to ensure they’re doing all they can to keep their children safe in their vehicles.”

Certified Child Passenger Safety Technicians from various agencies and the El Paso Police Department will assist with the onsite inspections.

“A true team effort, we are proud to partner with TxDOT and Walmart who are providing child safety seats and hosting city wide events for this very important drive to help ensure child safety in vehicles through the proper use of child safety seats,” said Sgt. Enrique Carrillo with the El Paso Police Department Public Relations Office.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, car seats and boosters provide protection for infants and children in a crash, yet car crashes are a leading cause of death for children ages 1 to 13.

“Having a child safety seat isn’t enough,” added O’Kane. “There are age specific seats and each must be installed correctly to be effective. Sometimes parents are not aware, our safety events assist with this.”

Safety checks at Walmart superstore locations across the city have been scheduled over the summer. Each two-hour session is first come, first served and children must be present. The first event is this Friday, June 8th.

  • June 8              9441 Alameda                         8 a.m. – 10 a.m.
  • June 13           13900 Horizon Blvd.                8 a.m.  –  10 a.m.
  • June 15           10727 Gateway West              8 a.m. – 10 a.m.

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:
