The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) conducted an advanced planning study for the I-10 corridor from the New Mexico State Line south to FM 3380 (Aguilera International Highway) in EL Paso county. According to TxDOT, the results of the study identified the need for improvements in the corridor; as a result, TxDOT has sectioned off the proposed improvements into four segments. It is estimated that 700 parcels of land are to be affected by the totality of this project. Segment 2, which runs through Downtown El Paso was determined to be of the highest priority and will be moving along faster than the other 3 segments. Even so, segment 2 is still in its earlier phases of development as it is now refining the preferred alternatives and developing the environmental document. According to the project schedule, TxDOT expects to have final environmental approval by 2024.
