The City of El Paso’s Engineering and Construction Management department is renewing its call for motorists to avoid cutting through residential neighborhoods near two major street reconstruction projects.
“As a courtesy to residents, we are once again asking motorists to avoid cutting through residential neighborhoods to avoid construction areas,” said engineering division manager Gilbert Andujo, P.E. “Additionally, residents should not seek to go around barricades or move traffic control devices – for their safety and that of construction workers.”
The only motorists who should be driving on Country Club Road in the Upper Valley are those who cannot access their property via any other route.
- Westbound thru traffic is detoured north on Doniphan, west on Artcraft Road, and south on McNutt Road.
- Eastbound thru traffic is detoured south on McNutt Road to Sunland Park Drive to Doniphan and Interstate 10.
- Local detours are in place to ensure residents, businesses, and other property owners have access at all times.
Another major street reconstruction project is underway on Montwood Drive in East El Paso.
While that street remains open to traffic, the four-lane road is restricted to two lanes – one in each direction – between McRae Boulevard and Zanzibar Drive. Motorists seeking to avoid delays associated with the work are encouraged to choose alternate routes along other major thoroughfares such as Interstate 10 or Edgemere Boulevard.
Motorists can sign up for direct email updates on both projects by texting “EPCONSTRUCTION” to 22828. Project updates are also posted on Facebook and Twitter.
