TxDoT/Go10 Closures, Detours for Week of June 10

First off a reminder: a 27-hour closure of I-10 West is set for June 17, Father’s Day. The details are listed below. Then on July 1, we are planning to close I-10 West again for 27 hours.

Go10 officials say that crews are working these multi-hour closures in order to be “finished with all major construction items – such as bridge building at Sunland Park and pavement replacement along North Mesa – before December.  It’s not an easy deadline to hit.  It’s only five months away; but, we’re pushing hard to make it happen so we can get the heck out of your way. “

Here are next week’s scheduled GO 10 closures:

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.
  • July 13             7555 Mesa                              8 a.m. – 10 a.m.
  • August 3          4530 Woodrow Bean               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:

20 Area Schools Receive TxDoT ‘Seed Money’ for Project Celebration

Twenty schools in the Texas Department of Transportation’s El Paso District have a head start on providing a safe celebration for their graduating seniors. The schools, in Brewster and El Paso counties, received Project Celebration awards.

Project Celebration is a combination of education and lock-in events conducted by educators, parents and community partners to help keep students safe and alcohol-free throughout the school year and especially during school-related celebrations.

Annually, TxDOT awards mini-grants (“seed money”) to help school officials, parents and community partners sponsor Project Celebration education activities and lock-in events. The mini-grants, each $700 can be used to cover expenses such as printing, materials, postage, supplies and room rental.

The goal is to reduce the number of injuries and deaths caused by impaired driving. TxDOT traffic data shows traffic crashes, half of which involve alcohol and other drugs, are a leading cause of death and serious injury for young people (ages 15-19).

The complete list of recipients is as follows:

• Alpine
• Andress
• Austin
• Bowie
• Burges
• Canutillo
• Chapin
• Clint ECHS
• Coronado
• Cotton Valley ECHS
• Del Valle
• El Paso
• Fabens
• Franklin
• Irvin
• Jefferson
• Marathon
• Tornillo
• Transmountain ECHS
• Valle Verde ECHS

TxDoT Officials to Highlight Work Zone Safety During National Work Zone Awareness Week

TxDOT is reminding drivers to take extra precautions in active work zones ahead of National Work Zone Awareness Week. The week, set for April 9 through the 13, brings awareness to work zone safety nationwide.

El Paso District Engineer Bob Bielek promotes work zone safety year round.

“Keep in mind, that in work zones, you have reduced ability to escape a bad situation. That’s usually because there’s concrete barrier most of the travel lane and sometimes lanes are reduced in width. There are many cars and trucks that move together very closely through a work zone,” said TxDOT District Engineer Bob Bielek.

He adds, “It is really important for people to control their speed, not tailgate and watch what is happening around them. If you get stopped for speeding in a work zone, and there are workers present, fines are doubled.”

In Texas, there are 2,500 active TxDOT work zones at any given time. Locally there are nearly a dozen from Anthony to East El Paso. Drivers should plan ahead.

“Take a look at our website to find out where we are going to have work zones in place and find another way to get to your destination. Avoid the work zone entirely if at all possible,” Bielek advised. “Keep in mind that work zones are temporary situations. They are there so we can provide you with a facility that meets all the geometric and safety standards and you’ll have a far more pleasant drive.”

TxDOT districts around the state conduct events in observance of National Work Zone Awareness Week. In the El Paso District, which covers Brewster, Culberson, El Paso, Hudspeth, Jeff Davis and Presidio counties, bilingual videos with safety messages will be distributed during the week and photos of field crews will be distributed daily all month on social media channels.

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.

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/Go10 Closures, Detours for Week of March 25

While the Sunland Park flyover ramp is currently closed, once the flyover ramp is opened (target date to open is April 30th), crews will next change how motorists get across the Sunland Park Drive overpass.

The overpass reconfiguration will switch traffic onto the eastern-most turnaround bridge, which we refer to as bridge 17.  As the illustration above shows, the traffic switch means a reduction of through-lanes to three: 1 southbound lane as shown by the pink line, and 2 northbound lanes as shown by the green and blue lines. This condition will be in place for at least five months.

Remember, the Sunland Park flyover ramp will be open before this traffic switch is implemented. Also keep in mind, GO 10 is aiming to be substantially complete with structures at the I-10/Sunland Park interchange by the end of this year.

Go10 officials simply say, “We want to be mostly out of your way by January 2019.”

If you’re wondering why this traffic switch is necessary:  GO 10’s design plans call for the demolition and reconstruction of the existing Sunland Park Drive overpass. Crews aren’t merely replacing the pavement of the overpass, they need to bring down the beams and rip out the columns.

The newly replaced overpass will have an increased clearance height and the support columns will be relocated to make way for the collector-distributor (CD) lanes, which will run alongside I-10’s main lanes. Click here to see a simulation video of the completed GO 10 corridor.

If you’re wondering why traffic can’t be place on both turnaround bridges (bridge 17 and bridge 16):  Traffic cannot be placed on the other turnaround bridge safely.

If you have other questions, contact GO 10 at info@go10elpaso.com or 1-844-373-Go10 (4610).

TxDoT/Go10 Project Closures, Detours for Week of March 5th

GO 10 is targeting the week of March 19 to close the Sunland Park Drive flyover entrance ramp to I-10 Eastbound. Once closed, the flyover ramp will stay closed for several months, possibly into early summer.

Pinpointing an exact closing date and opening date can be difficult in the field of highway construction because the work can be affected by many unpredictable factors, such as weather.

Closure of the Sunland flyover ramp is necessary so crews can demolish and re-build the pavement that physically connects the ramp to Sunland Park Drive. Once complete, the plan is to open the all-new Sunland flyover to traffic.

The I-10/Sunland Park interchange is the most complex section of GO 10’s six-mile work zone because it involves the demolition and re-construction of two bridges over I-10, as well as the construction of two brand new overpasses.

Keep in mind, GO 10’s broader goal is to be substantially complete with structures at I-10 and Sunland Park by December this year. To achieve that December goal, drivers can expect 2018 to bring:

  • more disruptive closures to the I-10/Sunland Park interchange
  • more significant detour routes
  • traffic slowdowns that can affect adjacent roads, such as South Mesa Hills Drive and Doniphan Drive.

·      The Resler Drive flyover entrance ramp to I-10 Eastbound will close.

·      The Sunland Park flyover entrance ramp to I-10 Eastbound will close.

 

Detour:  Eastbound traffic will exit at North Mesa Street (Exit 11) and take Doniphan Drive to Sunland Park Drive. Traffic may re-enter I-10 Eastbound from the Sunland Park Drive entrance ramp.

Possibly March 19 through early summer

 

March 19 is a target date. A definite start date will be announced soon.

 

·      The Sunland Park Drive flyover entrance ramp to I-10 Eastbound will be inaccessible.

 

Closure of the Sunland flyover ramp is anticipated to be a high impact condition. During this closure, drivers are encouraged to consider taking alternate routes when they can or avoid the I-10/Sunland Park interchange during peak rush hours.

 

For drivers who must travel through the interchange, they may like to consider carpooling to help reduce the number of vehicles on the road; plus, they may like to give themselves more time to arrive at their destinations on time.

 

Employers may like to offer employees the ability to work remotely or encourage meetings be conducted via teleconference rather than in-person when possible.
