Months of debate are over and tonight the Transmountain Road Loop 375 project is finally approved.
The project will add lanes and sidewalks to Transmountain from I-10 on the West side to the Franklin Mountains State Park.
Tx-DOT presented traffic projections to city leaders today in order to move forward with the project.
While some El Pasoans say this road will just add unnecessary traffic, others say we need it to accommodate the city's growing pains.
City council voted 7 to 1 today to pass the project.
Representative Susie Byrd was the only one against it.
