February 29, 2016

El Paso Electric (EPE) will require an eastbound and westbound closure on I-10 from 3 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday, March 6, 2016, between Sunland Park Drive and Executive Center Blvd. in west El Paso to allow EPE crews to safely work on structures related to the TxDOT I-10 Collector Project.

The closure is needed to allow EPE crews to safely remove two transmission structures between Sunland Park Drive and Paisano Drive and install new structures on both sides of I-10 and replace existing wire. Additional closures include:

  • Paisano Drive at Executive Blvd. and Sunland Park Drive and Paisano Drive
  • Crockett Street between Sunland Park Drive and Paisano Drive  

Detour Information:

  • Eastbound:  All traffic must exit Sunland Park Drive then turn left onto Sunland Park and turn right onto Mesa. Commuters can take Mesa to Downtown or turn right on Executive to I-10 eastbound ramp
  • Westbound:  All traffic must exit Executive Center and make a right at Executive Center. Commuters can take Mesa to I-10 or turn left on Sunland Park to I-10 westbound ramp

Phase II of this project will require an additional I-10 closure in this area in the upcoming weeks. The date and details of this closure will be provided at a later time.
