Two significant closures on Interstate 10 are scheduled for February as part of the GO 10 project on the city’s westside.

The first is planned for 25 hours starting Sunday, Feb. 11.

  • I-10 Eastbound will be closed at Redd Road (Exit 9) starting at 5 a.m. 
  • The closure will end at 6 a.m. Monday, Feb. 12.
  • Crews will be working on a traffic switch in the area. Drivers will be detoured onto South Desert Boulevard to the North Mesa Street on-ramp to I-10 Eastbound.

The second closure will be in place for 27 hours starting Sunday, Feb. 25.

  • I-10 Westbound will close at Resler Drive (Exit 12) starting at 3 a.m. and will open at 6 a.m. Monday, Feb. 26.
  • During the closure, North Mesa Street (SH 20) will be closed in both directions under the I-10 overpass. All ramps will be open, except for the North Mesa westbound exit ramp. 
  • Drivers will detour from I-10 West at Resler Drive (Exit 12), then take North Mesa Street (SH 20) to I-10 Westbound. Crews in the area will be switching traffic and demolishing a bridge.

Drivers are encouraged to plan their alternate route early. More details can be found on the GO 10 website, including registering for alerts.

About the project:

GO 10 is an infrastructure reconstruction of I-10 on El Paso’s Westside, between the Executive Center Boulevard and North Mesa Street exits. At $158 million, GO 10 is the largest traditionally delivered (design-bid-build) project that TxDOT’s El Paso District has done to date. Construction started in April 2015, and is expected to be complete in 2019.

The overall purpose of GO 10 is to improve traffic flow, vehicle capacity, and safety along the I-10 corridor between North Mesa Street and Executive Center Boulevard.

The 5.75-mile corridor 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 in both directions
  • The reconfiguration of ramps and overpasses at Sunland Park Drive, Resler Drive, and North Mesa Street (SH 20)

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 lanes and drainage. Turnarounds will be constructed at North Mesa Street and at Sunland Park Drive.

Note: All closures are subject to change. Exit ramps and entrance ramps may close up to one hour prior to a scheduled I-10 closure.
