TxDoT/Go10/10Connect closures, detours for Week of April 13

Long before motorists can drive on them, work is underway on the unseen, underground supports for some of the new direct connector ramps being built as part of the Texas Department of Transportation’s I-10 Connect Project in Central El Paso.

Crews have begun work at several locations on drilled shafts which will support the columns for several new bridges. The shafts are four to five feet in diameter and some extend almost 90 feet below the surface. After the shafts are drilled, workers build a basketlike structure of steel rebar and insert it into the hole. The hole is then filled with concrete on top of which bridge support columns will eventually be built.

Crews are currently drilling shafts for Bridge No. 4 which will connect southbound US 54 to the Bridge of the Americas by flying high over Interstate 10 as well as several new and existing ramps at the Spaghetti Bowl. They are also working on shafts for Bridge No. 8 which will provide direct access from eastbound Loop 375 to eastbound I-10 by running parallel to northbound US 54 over US 62 (Paisano Drive).

The work requires a mobile drill rig, concrete pump and other heavy equipment. To ensure the safety of motorists and workers during these operations, the following closures are scheduled for the week of April 14, 2019:
