TxDOT is conducting an advanced planning study for the I-10 Corridor from the New Mexico/Texas state line to Tornillo. The purpose of the study is to analyze and evaluate the current and future transportation needs for the I-10 El Paso corridor. This study is being called “Reimagine I-10” to emphasize the need to reimagine how the corridor operates today and develop unique solutions for the El Paso area. For a link to the study website, please click the Reimagine I-10 icon at the top right of this page.

With five U.S. and Mexico ports of entry in the study limits and with the use of I-10 as a major east/west freight corridor, the importance of this corridor is far-reaching. Furthermore, El Paso is experiencing significant growth and development, but because of its unique geographical location El Paso is limited to any alternative routing options, which ultimately puts more demand on to I-10.

The Reimagine I-10 feasibility study consists of three layers of study for improvement: operational, corridor-wide and technological. Within each layer, solutions such as ramp consolidation, additional capacity and truck platooning will be considered.

Study Limits

The study area spans 55 miles, from the border of Texas and New Mexico to Tornillo. It includes more than 200 bridge structures.

For study purposes, the corridor has been segmented into four areas to identify unique issues specific to each segment:

  • Northern Gateway
  • Downtown El Paso
  • Airport
  • Southern Gateway

Study Schedule

The study schedule is currently in the data-gathering and data research stage and includes:

  • Accident tabulation
  • Environmental constraints mapping
  • Historic traffic count evaluations
  • Future traffic count estimating
  • Demographic trends
  • Initial outreach to municipalities, agencies, regional transportation-related offices and I-10 corridor stakeholders

The study duration is an anticipated 18-month process with completion of the recommended master plan by the end of 2018.

Study Outreach and Participation

Throughout the study, TxDOT offers various opportunities for the public to get involved, including stakeholder workshops, event kiosks and open house meetings. Your involvement and input are critical to the project's development. The comments you provide are essential to TxDOT and will help identify the ways the project could potentially impact you, your community and the environment. 

The third and final public meeting series are planned for summer 2018 and this page will be updated regularly.

The second round of public meetings series took place in March 2018. Meeting Materials from those open houses:
