 TxDoT, Connect10 closures, detours for week of January 12

TxDoT, Connect10 closures, detours for week of January 12

Here’s a look at the region’s project closures for the week ahead. Highlighted are some high impact closures, while complete closure lists via hyperlinks below.

Truck traffic bound for Ciudad Juárez via the Bridge of the Americas should factor additional travel time into their crossing or consider using other international bridges. That’s because new lane closures on Gateway Boulevard South at US 62 (Paisano Drive) will prohibit trucks from making right turns at that intersection.

Beginning on Monday, January 13, trucks on southbound US 54 bound for the Bridge of the Americas will take Exit 20A (US 62/Paisano Drive), they must then turn left on Paisano, right on Boone Street, right on Delta Drive, right on Coles Street, and right on Paisano to access the Bridge of the Americas.

Because of its proximity to Bowie High School, trucks will not be allowed to use San Marcial Street as part of the official detour route.

Northbound traffic leaving the Bridge of the Americas will not be impacted at this time.

Automobile traffic on southbound US 54 will not be impacted either. They will continue to access the Bridge of the Americas via Exit 20B (Interstate 110/Juárez, Mexico/Autos Only).

The City of El Paso International Bridges Department recommends motorists sign up for an E-Fast Pass which will help speed their crossing and qualify them for reduced toll rates for southbound crossings at the Stanton Street and Zaragoza Bridges. For more information on the City of El Paso’s E-Fast Pass program, call (915) 212-7540. Click here to apply.

Westbound Paisano Drive will be closed to all traffic between 2am and 5am on Monday morning to allow crews to place signs and barriers for the detour. This detour will remain in place for approximately 4-6 weeks.
