The Sunland Park Flyover entrance ramp to I-10 East will be closed beginning Monday night.

The closures will last from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. daily through Wednesday.

According to the Texas Department of Transportation, crews will be doing prep work before the eventual removal of the Sunland Park flyover ramp.

The left lanes in both directions on I-10 will be closed during the day beginning Tuesday.

TxDOT said those closures are scheduled to last until Friday.

Drivers to whom we spoke offered plenty of comments about the construction.

"Thank goodness I don't work on the eastside," said Heather Rodriguez.

"I'd rather not drive anymore," said John Franco.

GO 10 is the largest project ever for TxDOT El Paso.

Officials reminded drivers to slow down and give workers plenty of space.

The area should look a lot different when work is finished in 2019.
