TxDoT/Go10 Project Closures, Detours for Week of January 14

Officials with the GO10 project are anticipating 2018 will be the year for ‘substantial progress’ on the structures at the I‐10/Sunland  Park Drive interchange.

That means drivers can expect some high‐profile closures throughout 2018. One of those closures starts Monday at 9 a.m. and will continue until mid‐February.

The  closure could cause traffic congestion, especially during rush hours. Motorists should plan ahead.

  • Stagger your commute times to reduce the impact of rush hours.
  • Avoid driving during rush hours altogether if you can.
  • Carpool or take Sun Metro to reduce the number of vehicles on the road.
  • Try an alternate route.
  • Before driving, check news reports, I-10 traffic cams or a traffic app to find the best route.
  • Work remotely if you can.
  • If you get caught in a traffic jam, pull off the road and patronize a nearby business.
