UPDATE: 57 Hour TXDOT closure opens ahead of schedule

    Traffic backs up on Mesa

    I-10 at Sunland Park is now open ahead of schedule, according to a tweet from the Texas Department of Transportation.

    The tweet was posted closed to 9 on Sunday evening.

    Crews were slated to finish construction until 6 a.m. Monday morning.

    I-10 was closed in both directions at the Sunland Park exit.

    Sunland Park was also closed between Mesa Hills and Doniphan and the Resler I-10 east flyover ramp .

    TXDOT was demolishing bridges as a part of the ongoing Go 10 Project.

    Yesterday the closure gave a traffic headache to may west El Paso drivers.

    They say the closures are frustrating, but they’ve learned to live with it.

    “I work at the Sunland Park casino so I have to go all the way down Mesa just to even get there for work,” Victoria Steward said. “I think it’s going to be crazy but I hope this bridge is worth it.”
