The latest on I-10/Sunland Park

Earlier this month, we told you crews were aiming to complete the Sunland Park Drive main overpass by the end of September.  Due to inclement weather and due to delays at a different location, crews are now aiming for mid-November to open the main overpass at Sunland Park Drive.

The latest on I-10/Resler

Once the Sunland Park overpass is open, the plan is to close the westbound Resler exit ramp for approximately six to eight weeks. Crews will be reconfiguring the Resler exit ramp and replacing the ramp’s pavement.  While the Resler exit ramp is closed, drivers may use the Sunland Park westbound exit instead. Click here to watch a video that shows the final design of the Resler exit ramp.

The latest on I-10/North Mesa

Two more lane pattern changes are coming to North Mesa Street (under the I-10 overpass) this year. The first lane pattern change could be in place by October 15. This change will require a 27-hour closure on October 14, as detailed below. The second change should occur before December. Delays have occurred at this location; but, plans are in place to recoup.

Almost there 

GO 10 is a four-year project that started in April 2015 and ends April 2019 (7 months away). When finished, crews will have:

  • Installed an equivalent of 72 acres of concrete pavement.
  • Erected an equivalent of 98 houses worth of retaining walls.
  • Moved enough dirt to fill 306 Olympic-sized swimming pools.
  • Built, rebuilt or widened 29 bridges – a length of approximately 11 football fields.
