EL PASO, Texas — Sunday, Father’s Day, drivers in west El Paso will have to deal with another closure.
Drivers have gone through three 57-hour closures previously. The good news — is this one will only last for 27-hours hours.
Sunday morning at 3 a.m., crews will close I-10 west.
Drivers will have to exit at Sunland Park and hop on to Mesa then follow Mesa to the westbound entrance.
Noemi Rojas with HNTB Corporation, on the engineering side of the project, says the official completion date is April 2019.
“By December this year we want to be done with the structures,” says Rojas.
“After December it’ll just be tying in gaps, painting, doing a lot of work along the sides of the roadway.”
After December crews will be working on the GO-10 project on the sides of I-10.
Rojas says we are so the project is close to the end now and there is no pausing for holidays.
“We are full steam ahead in 2018 to get this project finished. We can’t delay,” says Rojas.
Drivers on I-10 west should expect changes to traffic lane patterns by 6 a.m. on Monday.
Crews will be demolishing a bridge. And drivers will use the new collector-distributor lanes while the bridge is rebuilt.
