I was there yesterday and the road is closed several days this week. I only got through because it was veterans day and most of the crews were not working.  In general I would say this route is quite dangerous right now as the lanes are shifted to accommodate the construction and there  is no shoulder with huge mine trucks racing inches from you.

I walked the bike a fair piece of the way with it between me and the trucks right on the edge of the tarmac

Southwest / Cyclist friendly motel in Sanderson Tx

The proprietoress of the outback oasis motel in Sanderson told me she likes to be helpful to cyclists & said she had driven an eastbound cyclist 120 miles to Del Rio to the bike shop when he had three broken spokes.

Southwest / Southern Tier: Food in Valentine, Texas

If you are taking the "Marfa detour", & pass through Valentine, Texas on a school day, you can obtain water & possibly food at the school. Water is free & they sold me chicken burritos at $2 apiece two weeks ago.

Probably best to call ahead.

I was worried about the border checkpoint & how to get through it eastbound , so I called the checkpoint & was just told by a supervisor that I should stay on the access road, crossing to the north side access road at Lasca Rd. &  proceed east on the access road. An officer will interrogate me near the checkpoint.

This is different than what the map says, so I wanted to mention it here.
