Interstate 110 Texas
Interstate 110 currently connects Interstate 10 and U.S. 54 (Patriot Freeway) in El Paso with the Bridge of the Americas Port of Entry into Ciudad Juarez, Mexico. The short freeway also provides local access to U.S. 62 (Paisano Drive) and Chamizal National Memorial. IH 110 southbound travels independent of U.S. 54 on flyover ramps, and the same northbound with the exception of the ramp to IH 10 west. The U.S. 54 Patriot Freeway leading north from Interstate 10 is not a part of the Interstate highway system.
Prior to 2010, the IH 110 designation was unmarked. Signs previously acknowledged only Juarez, Mexico from U.S. 54 (Patriot Freeway) southbound, and I-10, U.S. 54 and U.S. 180 from the port of entry exit northbound. IH 110 is one of two three-digit Interstate highways that end at the international border. The other is Interstate 190 at Niagara Falls, New York.
I-10 Connect Project
Currently under study, the I-10 Connect Project includes a redesign of the IH 110 spur to the Bridge of the Americas Port of Entry, and improved connectivity between IH 10 and SL 375 (Cesar E. Chavez Border Highway). The project goals address traffic congestion at the border crossing, and the use of local roads by commercial trucks to connect from I-10 to Loop 375.

Interstate 110 travels through the Chamizal National Memorial. Located on both sides of the International border, the park was created after a boundary dispute between the United States and Mexico. The disputed land arose when the Rio Grande shifted course in 1864. Establishment of the memorial in 1964 settled the issue.
Alternate 9, the preferred option, includes the elimination of the volleyball interchange along IH 110 at U.S. 62 (Paisano Drive), and expansion of the southbound roadway to six and eight lanes. This will eliminate local access from the freeway spur to El Paso, defaulting motorists taking the route south into the Port of Entry. Alternate 9 also includes the addition of ramps from IH 10 to U.S. 54 south for LP 375, and a new ramp from U.S. 54 north to the IH 10 eastbound flyover from IH 110 north. A consultant at the TxDot open house meeting held in January 2017 indicated that signs for Juarez, Mexico will again omit IH 110.1
The Texas Bureau of Public Roads approved the designation of IH 110 with a certified mileage of 0.891 miles on March 28, 1967. AASHTO approved the addition to the Interstate system on June 30, 1970. Completion of the freeway occurred in 1973.
