Streetcar project work moves to UTEP area; Continues in Downtown El Paso

The Camino Real Regional Mobility Authority (CRRMA) has announced that contractors will add additional crews, expand their work zones and institute new street closures next week as utility work associated with the El Paso Streetcar Project kicks into high gear.

Stanton Street at Baltimore Drive

Beginning on Tuesday, February 2, 2016, lane and sidewalk closures will begin on Stanton Street near Baltimore Drive. The intersection will remain open to traffic. Motorists, pedestrians and cyclists are encouraged to obey all traffic signs.

Intersection of Franklin Avenue and Kansas Street

Beginning on Tuesday, February 2, 2016, lane shifts will be in place at the intersection of Franklin Avenue and Kansas Street. The intersection will remain open to traffic. Motorists, pedestrians and cyclists are encouraged to obey all traffic signs.

Stanton Street from Arizona Avenue to Montana

Beginning on Thursday, February 4, 2016, Stanton Street will close from Arizona Avenue to Montana Avenue. Rio Grande Avenue will be closed to all traffic at Stanton. Work at this location will take approximately four weeks. This will allow Stanton Street to re-open adjacent to Cathedral High School.

On Thursday, February 4, and Friday, February 5, 2016, Texas Avenue will close to eastbound and westbound traffic at Kansas Street. Motorists should consider Mills Avenue and San Antonio Avenue as an east-west alternate.

Work Underway at Other Locations

  • Father Rahm Avenue from Santa Fe Street to Campbell Street.

Work Planned at Other Locations in the Coming Weeks

  • San Antonio Avenue at Kansas Street.
  • Santa Fe Street at Franklin Avenue.
  • Oregon Street at Glory Road.

Residents, businesses, and schools will maintain access at all times during construction. The CRRMA is coordinating directly with those impacted.

El Paso Electric (EPE) will be providing new service to a building on the corner of Overland and Stanton which will require road closures in the area. Work is tentatively expected to begin on Monday, February 1, 2016, and is projected to last six weeks. Motorists using Stanton should follow marked detours and consider alternate routes.

This work is not related to the El Paso Streetcar project. Please contact EPE for more information.
