TxDot will be working on the Spur 1966 near UTEP, and that means lane closures starting at 7 o’clock tonight.

Beginning at 7 p.m. tonight, the three left lanes in both directions from Executive Center Boulevard to Santa Fe Street will be closed. The 3 left hand eastbound lanes of I-10 will be blocked off at 7 p.m., then the 3 left hand westbound lanes will be closed at 9 p.m. There will be one lane open in each direction so the freeway won’t shut down completely, but it will get bottled up as people move through that area.

The Schuster entrance and exit ramps in both directions also will be closed during these hours.

Your best bet will be to just avoid that portion of I-10 tonight, and use Paisano Drive and Mesa as alternate routes.
