 TxDoT, Connect 10 detours, closures for Week of October 11

TxDoT, Connect 10 detours, closures for Week of October 11

Once again, area motorists need to be aware of some high impact closures for on-going projects, including an upcoming 27-hour closure and long-term closure for our I-10 Connect project.

For several months now, southbound traffic on Interstate 110, the short freeway spur leading to the Bridge of the Americas, has been detoured into the northbound lanes. Soon, southbound traffic will be back in the southbound lanes which have been newly reconstructed as part of the I-10 Connect Project.

When the traffic switch takes place, I-110 will be closed to all traffic for approximately 27 hours.

This won’t be the last major interruption to traffic in the area. US 62 (Paisano Drive) is scheduled to close to all eastbound and westbound traffic at I-110 later this year. This closure which will last until summer 2021 is necessary so crews can demolish and reconstruct the overpasses which carry Paisano over I-110. Traffic will be detoured onto Delta Drive and SH 20 (Alameda Avenue).
