|The Preferred Route will travel south of Chihuahuita.|
The Rail Yard B section would run roughly parallel to Interstate 10 on Asarco land, then turn west just before Executive Boulevard. The route would then cross land currently owned by Cemex and turn north again as it approaches Paisano.
According to the upcoming meeting notice, this route "allows for impact avoidance and minimization for a number of resources, fulfills the purpose and need for the project, and provides feasible engineering alternatives. The Preferred Alternative best balances the expected project benefits with the overall effects."
The Preferred Alternative would require acquisition of 42 commercial properties overall, most of which would be along I-10 across from UTEP and along Paisano Drive east of Downtown. The final route may change and is subject to community input.
