I-10 Connect Project Closures

Motorists should pay special attention to the closures which are scheduled on Tuesday, March 19, and Wednesday, March 20. Drivers are encouraged to register for text alerts and electronic newsletter distribution by visiting the I-10 Connect website.

The I-10 Connect project is at the intersection of Interstate 10 and US 54 in El Paso County. The project extends from I-10 to Loop 375 (Cesar Chávez Border Highway) and provides access to the Bridge of the

Americas (BOTA) via I-110. The $96 million project includes the construction of four new direct connectors, a full reconstruction of the I-110/US 62 (Paisano Drive) interchange, and removes exit ramps from US 62 to I-110. I-10 Connect will improve connectivity between I-10 and Loop 375, also providing an alternate route to I-10. It started February 19, 2019, and is expected to be complete in less than three years. Follow I-10Connect on Facebook and Twitter.
