TxDOT, Connect10 closures, detours for week of January 24

Texas Department of Transportation crews in El Paso continue their work to upgrade, repair and construct the region’s roads; below is a listing of the ongoing projects around the Borderland.  The links provide specifics for each project.

New overhead signs on southbound US 54, some of which include augmented messages alerting drivers they are approaching the U.S.-México Border, will be installed in anticipation of the opening of a new direct connector from southbound US 54 to the Bridge of the Americas which is being built as part of the I-10 Connect Project in Central El Paso.

While some of the new overhead signs will reference the new exit from southbound US 54 to Juárez at the Spaghetti Bowl, that exit will not open until the end of February. Motorists on southbound US 54 seeking to travel to Juárez should continue south on US 54 to Exit 20B (Interstate 110/Juárez, México) until the new direct connector ramp opens.
