I-10 / Americas Interchange Project Closures

I-10 / Americas Interchange Project Closures

Monday, February 6, 2012 - 10:26pm

The $146 million project to directly connect Loop 375 to I-10 is on schedule to be open for traffic in January of 2013.

Until then, drivers will have to learn to live with detours and complete road closures while crews install new columns and overhead beams.

The project began in August of 2010 and as the construction expands, scheduled closures will be more common than in years past.

It's those closures affecting business at Estrella Canyon Nursery on Joe Battle. Manager Ruben Gallardo has seen a decrease in sales since construction began.

"A lot of people can't get here because of traffic or they don't want to come," Gallardo said. "There's a lot of traffic so they would rather go to other places."

Pete Jacobs with the Camino Real Regional Mobility Authority is sympathetic to commuters driving through the construction.

"Moving traffic safely is one of the things we have to do," Jacobs said. "We are always very concerned we are doing the right thing and keeping it as simple as possible."

Most of the major closures are scheduled overnight and during weekends when traffic isn't as bad.

Jacobs stressed the importance of obeying detour signs to make sure drivers and workers are safe.
