TxDOT, Connect10 work, detours for Week of May 9

Crews continue their work to improve the highways and byways around the Borderland this week.

As the I-10 Connect Project enters its final months, crews will be working in several locations to relocate safety barriers, paint newly constructed bridges and complete landscape work.

While that work will lead to several short-term closures next week, overnight construction of a new overpass carrying US 62 (Paisano Drive) over Interstate 110 near the Bridge of the Americas will require motorists bound for Mexico to utilize other ports of entry for several nights later this month and early next.
