TxDoT/Go10/Connect 10 Detours, Work Schedule for Week of March 10

Plenty of work, and just a few detours around the Borderland as construction continues on a couple of projects, and a new project gets underway.

As work progresses on the landmark I-10 Connect project which will provide improved connectivity between I-10 and Loop 375 in the heart of El Paso, more overnight closures are planned next week including a complete one-night closure of Interstate 110 leading away from the Bridge of the Americas and the first long-term closure of the project.

The closures are necessary as crews continue placing temporary concrete barrier to outline the work zone for the I-10 Connect project in South Central El Paso.

The 30-foot, 42-inch barriers will create an added layer of separation — and safety — between motorists, construction crews and heavy machinery.

The following overnight closures and detours will be in place to accommodate this work:

Sunday, March 10, 2019, 9pm to 5am

  • Northbound US 54 between Loop 375 and Alameda Avenue (SH 20) will be closed to all traffic.
  • Ramp N and Ramp O which connect Loop 375 to US 54 will be closed to all traffic.
  • Ramp T which connects Gateway North Boulevard to northbound US 54 will be closed to all traffic.
  • Traffic bound from eastbound Loop 375 or eastbound US 62 (Paisano Drive) to northbound US 54 will detour by accessing eastbound I-110 near the Chamizal National Memorial.
  • Traffic bound from westbound Loop 375 or westbound US 62 (Paisano Drive) to northbound US 54 will be detoured taking US 62 (Paisano Drive) west then entering eastbound I-110 near the Chamizal National Memorial.

Crews will be placing concrete barriers.

Wednesday, March 13, 2019, 9pm to 5am

  • Ramp V which connects southbound US 54 to US 62 (Paisano Drive) will be closed to all traffic.

Crews will be placing concrete barriers.

Thursday, March 14, 2019, 9pm to 5am

  • US 62 (Paisano Drive) will be open to one eastbound and one westbound lane between Gateway North Boulevard and Gateway South Boulevard
