The Texas Department of Transportation closed the Sun Bowl Drive access road Friday, Nov. 7, to rebuild the intersection at Main Drive and Yandell Drive. The access road runs from the Main/Yandell intersection to the connection with the westbound Schuster exit ramp from Interstate 10.
The area needed to be repaired after the recent removal of the Yandell Bridge. The work is part of the Spur 1966 project that will connect Paisano Drive with Schuster Avenue at the roundabout at the south end of The University of Texas at El Paso campus. The access road will remain closed through Dec. 31, 2014, but could reopen sooner if the project is completed ahead of schedule. Motorists are asked to find an alternate route.
