In just under two weeks, officials with the City of El Paso’s Capital Improvement Department will be hosting its first of many public meetings seeking community input for the “Onward Alameda” project.
“Creating a new successful plan and vision that meets the community’s needs requires participation and ideas from as many members of the community as possible, so we’re asking everyone to please join us so that your voice is heard,” said City Engineer Sam Rodriguez.
“The Alameda Corridor has historically been one of the integral corridors for the mobility and expansion of the El Paso community. As a State highway, it continues to serve as an essential roadway from Downtown El Paso to the Mission Valley and beyond the City limits.”
The “Onward Alameda” project is a comprehensive corridor study and master plan that will establish a long-term vision for the future of the corridor and how it should evolve in the coming years.
The City of El Paso has initiated a corridor planning study for a 13-mile stretch of the Avenue from Downtown El Paso to Socorro.
The community is invited to join the first of many public meetings on Thursday, August 26, 2021, at 5:30 p.m. by clicking here.
Members of the public can also join the meeting by dialing: 1-301-715-8592, and entering the following meeting ID when prompted: 813 7963 7868#.
Members of the community who cannot attend the meeting can still provide their valuable thoughts and opinions by visiting the website and leaving their input on the comment page.
The website also allows members of the public to take surveys, sign up for plan updates, join any online virtual meeting, and review draft work as it is created.
Officials add that this project is part of the City of El Paso’s commitment to enhance our comprehensive regional transportation system.
