Safety Updates Proposed for Traffic Leaving the Bridge of the Americas

To discourage illegal u-turns and reduce the number of dangerous weaving motions made by motorists leaving the Bridge of the Americas, the Texas Department of Transportation is considering changes to the northbound detour used by motorists. All northbound traffic leaving the Bridge of the Americas currently merges onto Paisano Drive using an existing on-ramp. Under the proposal, rather than merging, traffic will enter Paisano at a right angle via a new temporary roadway which is better aligned with the temporary CBP Access point. More details will be released on this proposal in the coming weeks.

  • Ramps F and G, which connect I-10 to Juárez at the Spaghetti Bowl, remain detoured through northbound US 54 to Pershing Drive until further notice.
  • Interstate 110, the short freeway spur leading to and from the Bridge of the Americas, remains closed to northbound traffic until further notice.
  • The ramp from southbound US 54 to US 62 (Paisano Drive) remains closed until further notice.
  • Both turnarounds under US 54 at US 62 (Paisano Drive) remains closed until further notice.
  • Intermittent closures on Durazno Avenue, Rosa Avenue and Uva Street.
  • Lane closures will be in place on eastbound and westbound SH 20 (Alameda Avenue) at US 54 until further notice.
  • Lane closures will be in place on eastbound and westbound US 62 (Paisano Drive) between I-110 and US 54 until further notice.
  • Lane closures will be in place on Ramp D, which connects southbound US 54 to eastbound I-10 until further notice.
