On March 12, major closures will take place on I-10 Eastbound and North Mesa Street (SH 20). Please plan ahead! The closures will occur at the following locations:

I-10 Eastbound

I-10 Eastbound will completely close after Redd Road. A detour will be in place exiting motorists at the Redd Road Exit (Exit 9) and putting them on southbound Doniphan Drive (SH 20). Traffic will then be able to re-enter I-10 East from Sunland Park Drive.

North Mesa Street (SH 20)

North Mesa Street (SH 20) will be closed in both directions at the I-10 Overpass. Detour signs will be posted.

South Desert Boulevard

South Desert Boulevard will be completely closed between Thorn Avenue and North Mesa Street (SH 20).


In the picture above, the red shaded area indicates the part of the I-10 Eastbound Overpass that will be demolished. Traffic on I-10 East will be switched onto the new center median of the I-10 Overpass, as indicated with the green arrows.


This demolition and lane switch work normally takes a few days to complete, but crews will be working hard on March 12 to complete it in 27 hours to minimize impacts to motorists and businesses.
