More Roadwork Is Coming To El Paso Streets Near You!
Yep, they found another area to screw up ... I mean, work on.
Since they don't have anything else to do, TxDoT has found another part of El Paso to mangle. They will be working on the Spaghetti Bowl area, in hopes to lessen the traffic congestion there, particularly traffic caused by those who are entering Juarez via the Cordova Bridge.
According to TxDoT.gov:
The I-10 Connect Project is at the convergence of US 54 and I-10 in El Paso County. The project extends from I-10 to Loop 375 (César Chávez Border Highway) and provides access to the Bridge of the Americas (BOTA) Port of Entry. The existing configuration on I-110 leading to the Port of Entry experiences excessive congestion during peak periods of the day, resulting in spillbacks to US 54 and the I-10 connector ramps. This project may require the acquisition of additional right of way.
Confused? TxDoT has scheduled a meeting to explain things. The EP Herald Post reported that the meeting will take place on Monday, July 30, at 5 p.m. at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center Medical Education Building. 5001 El Paso Drive.
