TxDoT, Connect10 projects, detours, closures for week of October 18

Work continues on area roadways, including an upcoming 27-hour closure and long-term closure for the I-10 Connect project

Southbound traffic on Interstate 110, the short freeway spur connecting US 54 to the Bridge of the Americas, will be detoured nightly next week and for much of the following weekend. The closures are necessary as crews prepare to move southbound traffic onto the newly constructed southbound lanes.

Long-term closure of US 62 (Paisano Drive) at I-110 set to begin later this year

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).
