TXDOT wants public comment on future I-10 construction
TXDOT may have a lot on its plate right now, but it wants to start a conversation about I-10 from the New Mexico and Texas state line to Tornillo.
The study, called Reimagine I-10, will be used to figure out what the needs are for this part of I-10 that runs through El Paso.
TXDOT is planning for the future while construction in west El Paso continues.
The agency said I-10 is a major east/west freight corridor.
With five U.S. and Mexico ports of entry, the importance of this corridor is far-reaching.
Transportation officials also said the city's growth and development are putting more of a demand on I-10.
Currently, TXDOT is studying 55 miles from the border of Texas and New Mexico to Tornillo.
The study also includes more than 200 bridge structures.
The other part of the study is public comment.
Public meetings will be held starting Wednesday to find out how the project could potentially impact drivers, the community and environment.
If you would like to share your thoughts and ideas at the Reimagine I-10 meeting, you have four chances.
