Motorists who use Pellicano Drive in Far East El Paso County will see some changes on their drive, according to the Camino Real Regional Mobility Authority (CRRMA).
The new traffic pattern will be in place through the end of the project in Summer 2022.
Two-way traffic on Pellicano Drive between Loop 375 and Darrington Road (Berryville Street) was moved from the north side of the roadway to the newly constructed south side of the roadway overnight Wednesday into Thursday.
The traffic switch will allow crews to construct a new driving surface on the north side of the roadway.
The $21 million project will widen the road to six lanes between Loop 375 and Darrington Road (Berryville Street). The new roadway will also include a landscaped median, bike lanes, a hike and bike trail and lighting.
The project also includes the relocation of utility lines.
The widening is part of El Paso County’s Comprehensive Mobility Plan. As part of the plan, the CRRMA is providing design and construction oversight services to a comprehensive suite of arterial roadway projects in fast-growing East and West El Paso County.
Other projects which have recently been completed or are currently underway include the following:
- Eastlake Boulevard from I-10 to FM 1281 (Horizon Boulevard).
- Mission Ridge Boulevard from Paso del Este Boulevard to Pellicano Drive.
- Vista del Sol Drive from Loop 375 to Charrington Street.
