GO 10 is an infrastructure reconstruction of Interstate 10 on El Paso’s Westside, between the Executive Center Boulevard and North Mesa Street exits. At $158 million, GO 10 is the largest traditionally delivered (design-bid-build) project that TxDOT’s El Paso District has done to date. Construction started in April 2015, and is expected to be mostly completed by the end of 2018.
The overall purpose of GO 10 is to improve traffic flow, vehicle capacity, and safety along the I-10 corridor between North Mesa Street and Executive Center Boulevard.
The 5.75-mile corridor entails four major components:
- The construction of collector-distributor lanes through the corridor
- The improvement of I-10’s direct connection with Paisano Drive (US 85) and the Border West Expressway
- The intermittent addition of lanes to I-10 in both directions
- The reconfiguration of ramps and overpasses at Sunland Park Drive, Resler Drive, and North Mesa Street (SH 20)
The project will also entail upgrades to a portion of North Mesa Street and portions of North and South Desert Boulevard frontage roads, such as improved turning lanes and drainage. Turnarounds will be constructed at North Mesa Street and at Sunland Park Drive.
