Long-Term Closure of Ramps to Juarez

Ramp F which connects westbound I-10 to Juárez is now closed to all traffic. This closure will be in place 24 hours a day, seven days a week until further notice. In the coming weeks, Ramp G which connects eastbound I-10 to Juárez will close, too.

Traffic seeking to access Juárez from westbound I-10 at the Spaghetti Bowl will use the following detour: Take Exit 22B (US 54/Alamogordo/Juárez/Fort Bliss); instead of going south to Juárez, follow northbound US 54. Take Exit 23 (Cassidy Road), then take Exit 22B (Pershing Drive). Use the newly widened turnaround at Pershing to enter southbound US 54. Continue on southbound US 54 and follow the signs to Juárez.

Commercial trucks should be mindful that they are prohibited from using many city streets adjacent to the detour route. The official detour has been designed to minimize traffic signals and includes newly widened portions to better accommodate truck traffic. However, motorists should consider using other international bridges to cross into Ciudad Juárez.
