Northeast El Paso Traffic Alert
EL PASO - If you live or plan on driving in Northeast El Paso, there's a traffic alert you should know about.
Starting today, June 1, Rushing Drive will be closed from Donald Drive to Sagittarius Avenue. According to a press release from El Paso Water Utilities, the road closure will last about ten weeks because of construction on a Stormwater Improvement Project that will address flooding in the area.
The project will improve public safety by keeping floodwater off neighboring streets and directing it to nearby ponds, according to the press release.
