 TxDoT, Connect 10 closures, detours for Week of November 8

TxDoT, Connect 10 closures, detours for Week of November 8

Crews will be working this week, forcing some high impact closures for area roads, as well as big changes for the I-10 Connect project.

The start of a months-long closure on US 62 (Paisano Drive) near the Chamizal Memorial will begin at 4am on Monday, November 9. The closure is necessary so crews can begin demolishing and reconstructing overpasses which carry Paisano over Interstate 110 immediately north of the Bridge of the Americas.

When the I-10 Connect Project is completed, motorists will have better connectivity between I-10 and Loop 375; all access from Paisano to the Bridge of the Americas will be removed to alleviate long-term congestion which has plagued neighborhoods along Paisano for years.
