Complete closure of Kansas Street begins Monday for Streetcar work

Kansas Street in Downtown El Paso will be closed to all traffic between Main Drive and Texas Avenue beginning on Monday, January 11, 2016. As part of the closure, Mills Avenue will be closed to eastbound and westbound traffic at Kansas.

The closure is necessary to allow crews from Paso del Norte Trackworks to begin relocating utilities related to the El Paso Streetcar project.

Kansas Street carries tens of thousands of vehicles a day from Interstate 10 to downtown destinations including El Paso City Hall, the El Paso County Courthouse, and the Federal Courthouse. Motorists who use Kansas Street are advised to expect delays and follow all marked detours. Additionally, they are encouraged to consider the following alternate routes:

  • Westbound traffic can exit I-10 at Cotton Street and accessing Downtown via Texas Avenue.
  • Eastbound traffic can exit I-10 at Downtown and turn right at Santa Fe, Oregon, or Mesa Streets.

During all closures, appropriate traffic control measures will be in place in impacted areas. Motorists, pedestrians, and cyclists should also allow additional time to travel in these areas and are asked to observe all signs, barricades, and detours.

Other road closures related to the streetcar project are already in place at the following locations:

  • Father Rahm Avenue is closed to westbound traffic from Mesa Street to Santa Fe Street.
  • Father Rahm Avenue is closed to eastbound and westbound traffic from Kansas Street to Mesa Street.
  • South Stanton Street is closed to northbound and southbound traffic at Father Rahm Avenue.
  • North Stanton Street is closed to northbound and southbound traffic between River Avenue and Arizona Avenue.

Closures will last approximately four to six weeks. Other closures along these and other corridors are planned in future phases.

Residents, businesses, and schools will maintain access at all times during construction. The Camino Real Regional Mobility Authority is coordinating directly with those impacted. For more information, the CRRMA has the following resources for residents:
