I-10 West Ramp to Juarez Closes for 9 Months
Traveling to Juarez from Central El Paso will be a little different through at least next June.
Ramp F, which connects westbound I-10 to Juárez around the Spaghetti Bowl, is now closed and will be in place 24 hours a day, seven days a week for approximately the next nine months.
The long-term closure is necessary so crews can build new ramps to Juárez. Once complete, traffic going from I-10 to Juárez will have separate ramps from traffic traveling from I-10 to Loop 375 via the Spaghetti Bowl.
But in order to accomplish that, parts of the existing ramps from I-10 to Juárez have to be removed, replaced, and connected and that requires closing the ramps to all traffic to accommodate this work.
And, spoiler alert: Ramp G, which connects I-10 East to Juárez, will close too in the coming weeks. Watch the video below for a visual on the detours you'll have to take until further notice.
Detours to Juarez
For the first two days of the closure (Sunday and Monday, Sept. 8 and 9), traffic seeking to access Juárez from I-10 west will take Exit 23B (US 62/180/Paisano Drive/Chelsea Street) and turn left on Paisano to access the Bride of the Americas.
Beginning on Tuesday, September 10, traffic to Juárez from westbound I-10 at the Spaghetti Bowl will take Exit 22B (US 54/Alamogordo/Juárez/Fort Bliss); instead of going south to Juárez, follow northbound US 54. Take Exit 23 (Cassidy Road), then take Exit 22B (Pershing Drive).
Use the newly widened turnaround at Pershing to enter southbound US 54. Continue on southbound US 54 and follow signs to Juárez. In a nutshell, up and down U.S. 54 will be your new route.
