TxDoT/GO10 Closures, Detours for Week of April 1st

Work at Sunland Park continues. The flyover to I-10 East is still closed and work to demolish the old ramp and prepare for the new ramp’s opening on April 30th is on track.

As mentioned last week, once the new ramp opens crews will then shut down the Sunland Park overpass, between the two traffic lights, at the Sunland/I-10 intersection. The overpass will be demolished and replaced.

Next up: North Mesa. Work here will ramp up in the next few weeks, with major improvements planned, including replacing pavement in the area and constructing Texas turnaround lanes.

Once work is complete, the overpass will have been completely replaced, and will feature a full bridge span across North Mesa Street free of support columns in the median.

Sunland Park FLYOVER




March 19-April 30


·      The Sunland Park Drive flyover entrance ramp to I-10 Eastbound remains inaccessible. The flyover will stay closed until April 30.


Detour:  To enter I-10 Eastbound, follow the detour signs to the Paisano Drive entrance ramp.


Crews are working to open the all-new Sunland Park flyover ramp.


Sunland Park OVERPASS



Starting April 30 and until further notice


·      The Sunland Park Drive overpass that allows traffic to get cross I-10 will be closed for at least five months.


Detour:  Traffic will be detoured onto the newly constructed turnaround bridge located alongside the closed overpass.


Crews will be demolishing and reconstructing the closed overpass.



North Mesa



April 2-13

Weekdays only

9 am to 4 pm


·      North Mesa Street (SH 20) will have a right lane closed in both directions between Osborne Drive and North Desert Boulevard.


NOTE:  In the next three weeks, crews plan to increase their presence along North Mesa Street (SH 20) between Osborne Drive and Remcon Circle.  The pavement in that section of North Mesa Street (SH 20) needs to be replaced, per GO 10’s design plans.  The work will mean motorists can expect increased lane closures, periodic shifts in lane patterns, detours, and increased traffic congestion for nine months.  GO 10 asks for your patience as crews work to be finished by December 2018.


North Desert



April 2-6

9 am to 4 pm daily


·      North Desert Boulevard will have a left lane closed between North Mesa Street (SH 20) and Thorn Avenue. One lane will always remain open. Access to the I-10 Westbound entrance ramp will be open.

I-10 EAST @ NORTH MESA Overnight

Sunday, April 15

9 pm to 6 am


·         I-10 Eastbound will close completely between North Mesa Street (SH 20) and Resler Drive.


Detour:  Motorist will exit at North Mesa Street (Exit 11) and follow the detour signs to re-enter I-10 Eastbound using the Sunland Park Drive entrance ramp.


Crews will implement a change that places I-10 Eastbound traffic onto the paralleling eastbound collector-distributor (CD) lanes.  By 6 am on Monday, April 16, motorists will be traveling on the CD lanes for approximately a half mile between the North Mesa Street overpass and Resler Drive. The speed limit will be reduced to 45 mph in this half-mile section.  The traffic switch will be in place for several months while crews work on the main lanes of I-10 Eastbound.
