EL PASO, Texas — When the I-10 Connect Project is complete, Ramp H which connects eastbound I-10 to northbound US 54 and Juárez will be widened from two lanes to three. But before it gets wider, it will temporarily get narrower.

Overnight closures of Ramp H are scheduled for next week as crews place temporary 42-inch barriers to create an added layer of separation — and safety — between motorists, construction crews and heavy machinery. Those barriers will reduce parts of Ramp H from two lanes to one.

Tuesday, January 21, and Wednesday, January 22, 2020
Nightly from 9 pm to 5 am

  • Ramp H which connects eastbound I-10 to northbound US 54 will be closed to all traffic.
  • Right lane closures will be in place on eastbound I-10 between Piedras Street and Loop 478 (Copia Street).
  • DETOUR: Continue on eastbound I-10, take Exit 24A (Trowbridge Drive), use the newly widened Trowbridge Turnaround to enter westbound I-10, take Exit 22B (US 54/Alamogordo/Juárez/Fort Bliss) and follow signs to US 54 or Juárez.

Crews will be relocating temporary safety barriers.
