City: Winn Road, Pan American Drive improvements complete, Will open Monday

On March 1, 2021, the City of El Paso will open the Winn Road extension, a regional transportation project that will relieve Loop 375 and its frontage roads of traffic congestion related to heavy truck traffic headed into Mexico through the Ysleta Port of Entry.

 “This is a great example of leveraging city funding with federal dollars to provide cost-effective solutions to enhance El Paso’s regional comprehensive transportation system,” said Yvette Hernandez, Director of the City’s Grant Funded Program.

 The City collaborated with the Camino Real Regional Mobility Authority (CRRMA) and the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) on this $13.9 million project to extend and widen Winn Road from Pan American Drive to Rio del Norte Drive.

The project included improvements to Pan American Drive from Loop 375 to Winn Road such as raised medians, illumination, addition of curb and gutter, resurfacing of existing pavement, among other amenities to provide commercial freight vehicles (semi-trucks) with a new route when crossing at the Ysleta Port of Entry.

 The Ysleta Port of Entry, also commonly known as the Zaragoza International Bridge, is a busy port of entry with thousands of vehicles crossing daily.

In 2020, more than 4 million privately-owned vehicles and over 1.1 million commercial vehicles crossed through the international bridge.
