El Paso Water Crews to Close Portion of Scenic Drive; Kentucky Damn Project set to Start

Starting Monday, February 6, El Paso Water is closing Scenic Drive from Louisville Avenue to Kentucky Street for several months for the Kentucky Dam Improvements project.

Drivers will still be able to enter and exit Scenic Drive by detouring around the closure on Louisville Avenue. The $3.9 million project will reduce flooding in Central El Paso.

The project will increase the capacity of nearby ponds and add piping that keeps water off the streets by directing stormwater into the dam.

Additionally, the project will improve service in the area by replacing water and wastewater lines.
