Work by El Paso Electric requires closure on I-10, Paisano on Sunday
A portion of Interstate 10 and Paisano Drive in west El Paso will be closed on Sunday.
All eastbound and westbound lanes on I-10 from Sunland Park Drive to Executive Center Boulevard will be shut down from 3 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Additionally, Paisano Drive will be closed at Sunland Park Drive and Executive Center Boulevard.
Crocket Street will also be closed between Sunland Park Drive and Paisano Drive.
The closure is required so that El Paso Electric crews can work on structures related to the Texas Department of Transportation I-10 Collector Project.
Crews will remove two transmission structures between Sunland Park Drive and Paisano Drive, install new structures on both sides of I-10 and replace existing wire.
All eastbound traffic must exit on Sunland Park Drive, then turn left onto Sunland Park, followed by a right on Mesa Street. Commuters can take Mesa Street to downtown or turn right on Executive Center Boulevard get onto the I-10 eastbound ramp.
All westbound traffic must exit Executive Center Boulevard and turn right on Executive Center. Commuters can take Mesa Street to I-10 or turn left on Sunland Park Drive to the I-10 westbound ramp.
Mesa Street between Executive Center Boulevard and Sunland Park Drive could potentially have heavy traffic, as traffic will be diverted from the interstate to Mesa Street.
Phase two of the project will require additional closures on I-10 in the upcoming weeks. Tune in to KFOX14 for additional information as it becomes available.
