10-Day Closure Scheduled For Country Club Bridge
EL PASO — Country Club Bridge across the Rio Grande in El Paso's Upper Valley will close for ten days beginning on Monday, March 5 due to Rio Grande levee construction. The bridge is scheduled to reopen on March 15 or as soon as construction is completed.
During construction, detour signs will direct vehicles approximately 2 miles north to Artcraft Bridge via Westside Drive or Doniphan Drive.
The closure, which will affect all lanes of traffic in both directions, is needed so that automatic flood control gates can be installed at the bridge.
