Just about a year into the multi-million dollar Interstate 10 reconstruction project, officials with the Texas Department of Transportation here in El Paso continue to explain the project and help motorists find routes around the the work.
Known as Go10 Project, the information is available via a website or a facebook page that were first launched late last year. In addition to the social media sites, motorists can get updates via twitter or email, simply by signing up at the site.
The project is slated to be completed in 2019 and encompasses the infrastructure reconstruction of Interstate 10 (I-10) on El Paso’s Westside, between the Executive Center Boulevard and North Mesa Street (SH 20) exits.
The $158 million project extends 5.75 miles and entails four major components:
• The construction of collector-distributor lanes through the corridor
• The improvement of I-10’s direct connection with Paisano Drive (US 85) and the Border West Expressway
• The intermittent addition of lanes to I-10’s mainlanes in both directions
• The reconfi guration of ramps and overpasses at Sunland Park Drive, Resler Drive, and North Mesa Street The project will also entail upgrades to a portion of North Mesa Street and portions of North and South Desert Boulevard frontage roads, such as improved turning movements and drainage. Turnarounds will be constructed at North Mesa Street and Sunland Park Drive.
