EL PASO — Residents in two different parts of El Paso are invited to community meetings scheduled to discuss construction coming to their neighborhood.
The first involves the concept/design stage of street improvements for Van Buren and Monroe streets, from Dyer to the Dead End West of Piedras. Street improvements consist of new pavement, sidewalk, curb, gutter, and landscaping. Van Buren and Monroe will be converted to two-way streets in an effort to improve the traffic flow in that area. A presentation will be made at this community meeting to highlight the concept plan and show the design. All interested individuals are encouraged to attend. The meeting is set for January 16, at 6:00 P.M at the Grandview Senior Center
located at 3134 Jefferson Ave.
January 17 at 6:00 p.m. at the Cadwallader Elementary School Cafeteria located at 7988 Alameda is the second meeting. The focus is the concept/design stage of the street reconstruction for Carpenter Street (from Josephine to Helms Dr.). The improvements consist of the reconstruction of Carpenter Street to include new driveways, ADA compliant wheel chair ramps and wider sidewalks to allow for improved walkability. A presentation will be made at the community meeting to highlight the concept plan and show the design. All interested individuals are encouraged to attend.
