Plans for the State's proposed Schuster re-alignment and extension over Interstate 10 may include a roundabout which incorporates a pedestrian underpass, helping to remove foot traffic from what is sure to become a busy intersection. The realigned roadway will be called Spur 1966, an homage to UTEP's historic national championship win in basketball nearly 50 years ago.
Construction could start in spring of 2013 and be completed by fall of 2014. The Texas Department of Transportation hopes to have the environmental assessment ready by summer's end.
