New direct connector from westbound I-10 to Juárez set to open

REMINDER: Access to the Bridge of the Americas has changed.

Reconfiguring access to the Bridge of the Americas is a key component of the I-10 Connect project. The most recent change came with the opening of a new direct connector from southbound US 54 to the Bridge of the Americas earlier this week. Below is information on current access to the bridge:

  • From westbound I-10: Take Exit 22B (US 54/Alamogordo/Juárez/Fort Bliss) and bear left to access the Bridge of the Americas. This route is permanent.
  • From eastbound I-10: Take Exit 24A (Trowbridge Drive), use the newly widened Trowbridge Drive turnaround to enter westbound I-10 and follow directions above. This route is temporary.
  • From southbound US 54: Take Exit 21A (I-10 East/San Antonio/Juárez) and bear right to access the Bridge of the Americas. Exit 20B (I-110/Juárez), which departed US 54 near Zavala Elementary School, has been eliminated. This route is permanent.
  • From Gateway Boulevard South: Enter southbound US 54 at Pershing Drive and follow signs to Juárez. Motorists who use the onramp from Gateway Boulevard South to southbound US 54 at Yandell Drive are not be able to access the Bridge of the Americas. This route is permanent.
