|Border Highway West Concept|
|Concept of completed I-10 Project at Sunland Park|
TxDOT will hold community meetings in El Paso this month to inform the public on these the projects. The first will be on June 5 and will cover the Interstate 10 Collector-Distributor Lanes Project. More information can be found here. The second will be on June 20 and will cover the Loop 375 Border Highway West Extension Project. More information on that meeting can be found here.
The projects have been in the works for years and are part of the larger El Paso Comprehensive Mobility Plan unveiled in 2008. The video below was created in 2009 to highlight the Southern Relief Route, or what transportation officials feel would be a valid alternative to Interstate 10, helping to relieve congestion on the city's main freeway.
