TxDOT I-10 Widening
Features & Highlights
- Sundt’s Self-perform concrete pavement will replace existing asphalt.
- Widens 7.5 miles of I-10, improving capacity, operation, circulation, and safety.
The I-10 widening broke ground at the end of May 2022 and is a key piece of the puzzle for recent infrastructure changes in the city of El Paso. The need for this widening is due to a bottleneck in traffic that reaches the New Mexico/Texas state line. The widening will improve the traffic flow from the state line all the way through downtown El Paso.
Expected to take three years, the reconstruction is a $174 million build for Sundt and highlights Sundt’s self-perform concrete capability. The project team will widen 7.5 miles of the I-10 from Antonio Street to Mesa Street, improving capacity, operation, circulation, and safety. Self-perform concrete pavement will replace the existing asphalt, and the team will add additional inside lanes in each direction, auxiliary lanes between ramps, a new overpass, replace 25 mainline bridges, and add lighting and an intelligent traffic system (ITS).
Sundt adapted to the needs of the city of El Paso, coordinating with TxDOT so that lane restrictions are as minimal as possible; residents have full freeway access during the busiest parts of the day– morning and evening rush hour.
Sundt’s project team have worked together on El Paso highway improvements for seven years. They travelled from the El Paso Go-10 and I-10 Connect projects, making for a well-oiled machine to tackle this last piece of I-10 traffic flow in El Paso.
