EL PASO, Texas - The GO 10 highway construction project is over halfway done.
The $158 million project spans nearly 6 miles on I-10 in West El Paso.
Since 2015, the way drivers navigate the highway has changed dramatically.
"We're probably on the order of 75-80 percent completed at this point," TxDOT District Engineer Bob Bielek said.
Here's a timeline of major project milestones:
The Westbound Paisano Bridge over I-10 near Sunland Park is demolished. Work on new bridge begins.
Bridge to Nowhere
The Bridge to Nowhere, also known as the Buena Vista Bridge, is demolished.
Construction on new Resler Flyover Ramp begins
The Paisano/Doniphan connection opens, providing an alternate route to I-10.
I-10 Eastbound Mesa Overpass
The I-10 Eastbound Mesa overpass is demolished. Traffic moved to the median of the overpass.
GO 10 reaches 50-percent completion
Resler Flyover Entrance Ramp
The old Resler Flyover Entrance Ramp to I-10 is demolished. New ramp opens for drivers.
I-10 Westbound Mesa Overpass
The I-10 Westbound Mesa Overpass is demolished. Traffic moved to the median of the overpass.
The biggest changes drivers will see in 2018 will be the demolition of the Sunland Park flyover entrance ramp to I-10 East. The Sunland Park bridge will also be extended. Bielek said the worst closures will be around the Summertime.
"Bear with us as we go through this last stage because it's going to be really great once we finish," Bielek said.
