Before crews begin widening US 54 over US 62 (Paisano Drive) as part of the I-10 Connect Project, they’ll begin demolishing parts of the existing US 54 bridge there next week.

That work will require complete overnight closures of Paisano between Gateway Boulevard North and Gateway Boulevard South.

This stretch of US 54 will be widened from two southbound lanes to three as part of the three-year, $96 million project which will dramatically re-shape the Spaghetti Bowl and nearby roadways in Central El Paso.

Elsewhere, motorists should also expect the following upcoming traffic impacts as crews begin drilling support shafts for bridges and continue placing concrete safety barriers:

  • A one-night lane closure on eastbound Interstate 10
  • A long-term closure of Ramp T which connects Gateway Boulevard North to US 54
