TxDoT, Connect10 work, detours and closures for Week of November 3rd

Here’s a look at the area’s TxDoT project closures for the week ahead; highlighted are some high impact closures and complete closure lists via hyperlinks are highlighted below.

As crews continue work on new support columns for the widening of Ramp H which connects eastbound I-10 to US 54 and Juárez, closures will be required next week on Gateway Boulevard East and some on-ramps.

Elsewhere, motorists, pedestrian and cyclists should prepare for a full weekend closure of SH 20 (Alameda Avenue) at US 54 as crews continue demolition work on parts of existing ramps from I-10 to Juárez.

Additionally, members of the public are encouraged to attend the Texas Department of Transportation’s monthly I-10 Connect community meeting to get updates on the project’s progress and upcoming traffic impacts.

The community meeting will be held at 5:30pm on Tuesday, November 5, in the Medical Education Building at Texas Tech University Health Science Center El Paso’s Paul L. Foster School of Medicine, corner of Rick Francis Street and Robert Brown Avenue.
