Americas Interchange Phase 2 Starts in March

Work will begin in March on three additional Direct Connectors (DC) at the Americas Interchange project. The three new ramps will connect Westbound I-10 to Northbound Loop 375, Westbound I-10 to Southbound Loop 375, and Eastbound I-10 to Southbound Loop 375.

The $43 million project is scheduled for completion in February of 2014 and comes on the heels of the recently completed first three DCs. Those ramps opened in January 2013.

Project Location
The contract has been awarded to J.D. Abrams of Austin, who has worked on several highways projects in El Paso, including construction of the Spur 601 freeway which opened in June 2011, and the current Loop 375 Northeast project. The initial three ramps at the Americas Interchange were constructed by Americas Gateway Builders. The Camino Real Regional Mobility Authority (CRRMA) is managing the project.
