EL PASO- It's commencement time at UTEP and that's going to mean major traffic snarls.
If your business takes you to the university area tomorrow, the roads to avoid are North Mesa Street, Schuster Avenue and Sun Bowl drive. UTEP's holding three graduation ceremonies, one at 9:00 in the morning, another at 2:00 in the afternoon and the last one at 7:00 at night.
The new direct access between I-10 west Schuster exit ramp and the University Ave. Roundabout will open temporarily over the weekend to accommodate UTEP's commencement ceremony traffic. This will allow UTEP traffic to bypass the traffic signal at UTEP. This roadway feature will be permanently open on Friday, December 16.
