Getting past El Paso

Were going I-10 toward Tucson from Midland, TX. I have heard bad stuff about I-10 through and I-375 over the mountains at El Paso. Does anyone have information about this. Maybe a good route around. I should have asked days ago. Were going through/by/around tomorrow. Thanks for any help.

I have travelled that route many times.
This time of year you may hit winds and snow on the pass between NM and AZ.
Other than that you should have no problems. Roads a good.

68 whiskey are you choosing transmountain/loop 375 or I10?

I am from El Paso and live near us54 and i10 close to kenworthy and us54.
Whats your rig like and I will say depending your route i10 does have traffic through El Paso but if you stay not in the extreme left but the one next to it and keep speed which the limit is 60mph you will be good all the way to las cruces. If you choose loop 375 it does have a good descent and the final elevation is around 5500 ft above sea level. Plus based on weather could potentially have snow or ice. If you take loop 375 from i10 you can take us 54 north exit kenworthy and turn left on Martin Luther king Blvd this is a nice route not a bad one and drive approx 5-8 miles and turn left on Anthony gap this will also put you back on i10 west but without the significant grades. I use a half ton and pull a 40ft fifth wheel to give you aspects.. but definitely google Anthony gap to I 10.

Miss my home town !!!!!

Hey guys. Thanks for getting back with me. I talked to some locals here since I posted this, and Blender you are spot on. Thanks for the advice. You are now the 3rd person to advise this route. This is the way we will be going tomorrow. Thanks to all for your help. I will follow up on this to help someone else. Happy trails.

I grew up in El Paso, it has changed a lot since I left in the early 80's. We still travel there for family but they are all in Cruces and Ruidoso now.

If it was me I'd do 1 of 2 things;
Take I-10, have Google maps open and check traffic long before getting to El Paso.
Take 375 to 54 to MLK/3255 up to 404 and go across and catch I-10 again.

If you're going to spend the night, Cruces is a great place. We stay at Sunny Acres when we are there for several days, it's a little ways of I-10. I might suggest the Hacienda RV Park for just the night it's right off I-10.
Then go into Old Mesilla and eat at La Posta wonderful mexican food.
