TxDoT, Connect 10 Project closures, detours for week of March 8

Here’s a look at project closures for the week ahead including some high impact and long term closures on the I-10 Connect project.

While overnight closures will continue next week on Interstate 10 at US 54, motorists who travel near the intersection of US 54 and US 62 (Paisano Drive) should also be on the lookout for major changes in the temporary traffic patterns they have gotten used to there.

Motorists are encouraged to avoid travel in that area on the night of Thursday, March 12, and travel with extreme caution in the area beginning on Friday, March 13.

The high impact overnight closures are necessary to allow crews to continue placing concrete pavement on Paisano and implement a temporary traffic pattern will help ensure residents and emergency vehicles have access to the Findley/Latta neighborhood during construction.

Highlighted below are some additional closures and complete closure lists via hyperlinks.
