TxDOT Says Traffic Management Is Part Of Road Construction Around Town
TxDOT is working with the El Paso Police Department and the El Paso County Sheriff's Office to help traffic flow in West El Paso during highway closures. Last weekend, EPPD was directing traffic along Mesa as drivers were rerouted off of I-10 and onto Mesa and Sunland Park Drive.
During the GO 10 Project, which is expected to last several years, TxDOT will spend approximately $3-4 million for traffic control. Officers and deputies not only direct traffic, but they make sure that people are following detours that are set up around construction areas.
Officers are on patrol along Mesa this week and on portions of the highway that are closed overnight.
Txdot is also working to enforce speed limits, so beginning Monday, officers will be out monitoring 1-10 to make sure drivers aren't speeding in or near construction zones.
