West El Paso drivers prepare for another holiday road closure

On Father's Day, drivers in west El Paso will have to deal with another closure.

Drivers have gone through three 57-hour closures already.

Sunday's is expected to last only last for 27 hours.

Sunday from 3 a.m. to Monday 6 a.m., crews will close Interstate 10 West.

Drivers will have to exit at Sunland Park and hop on to Mesa, then follow Mesa to the westbound entrance.

Noemi Rojas with HNTB Corporation, on the engineering side of the project, says the official completion date is April 2019.

“By December this year we want to be done with the structures,” says Rojas.

“After December, it’ll just be tying in gaps, painting, doing a lot of work along the sides of the roadway.”

After December crews will be working on the GO-10 project on the sides of I-10.

Rojas says the project is close to the end now and there is no pausing for holidays.

“We are full steam ahead in 2018 to get this project finished. We can't delay,” says Rojas.

By 6 a.m. on Monday, drivers on I-10 west should expect changes to traffic lane patterns.

Crews will be demolishing a bridge.

Drivers will use the new collector-distributor lanes while the bridge is rebuilt.
