Sunday I-10 closure is due to El Paso Electric construction


Crews will begin work on transmission lines over Interstate 10 at North Raynor Street on Sunday

Drivers can expect crews on I-10 setting up for the closure at 4 a.m.; the official closure is at 5 a.m.

Traffic will be detoured onto Gateway East and Gateway West off the Piedras Street exit.

El Paso Electric says it knows drivers will be utilizing I-10 and it's asking that they be patient as they hit the roadways.

El Paso Electric says this work is unavoidable as transmission lines in the area will be upgraded.

"There’s a lot of construction work but for this case, this is to improve reliability in that area as we hit to peak season," said Eddie Gutierrez, with El Paso Electric.

The closure will be in place for seven hours and should wrap up by noon.
