TxDot Announces Major I-10 Closure Coming March 12


Heads up west El Paso drivers; there’s going to be a complete closure of I-10 East at North Mesa this month.

The Texas Department of Transportation will undertake an ambitious operation beginning March 12 that will require a 27-hour closure of the I-10/N. Mesa interchange, according to a TxDot press release.

In that time period, crews will demolish the existing I-10 Eastbound Overpass (shaded in red below) and re-stripe the eastbound lanes. When all is said and done the following Monday morning (March 13), the intersection will be restored and I-10 Eastbound traffic will be switched over and driving on the new median of the I-10 Overpass (shown with arrows).


The switch will stay in place for at least four months while crews build a new and improved I-10 Eastbound Overpass.

The following closures will go into effect starting at 3 a.m. Sunday, March 12, and will re-open at 6 a.m. on Monday, March 13:

I-10 Eastbound will be completely closed after Redd Road.

Detour: Traffic on I-10 East will detour at the Redd Road Exit (Exit 9) onto Doniphan Drive (SH 20) and allowed to re-enter I-10 East from Sunland Park Drive.

North Mesa Street (SH 20) in both directions will be completely closed at the I-10 Overpass.

Detour: Follow the detour signs in place.

South Desert Boulevard access road will be closed to through-traffic between Redd Road and Thorn Avenue, and completely closed to all traffic after Thorn Avenue.

Detour: Traffic will detour onto Doniphan Drive
