Thanks!!!

The last time I drove through El Paso was in October 2017 while the "Go 10" project between Executive Center Blvd and Sunland Park was underway. I remember seeing some huge bridges being cast, as well as a massive amount of earth being moved. I'd be interested to see the final results of this undertaking.

Some of the finished work on the TX-375 loop is visible in Google Street View (Feb 2020 imagery).

It's an impressive work, especially in the area between Schuster Ave and Executive Center Blvd where they managed to cram two freeways and an arterial (85) into such close proximity. I like how 375 rides on pillars and straddle bents over the railroad; in fact that's one of the first things I noticed on my 2017 trip.

So in your opinion did all of this construction serve a pressing regional need, or is this a case of Texas being awesome and building it just to say they built it?
