Some motorists, pedestrians and cyclists will need to find alternate routes across Interstate 10 in Downtown El Paso as crews from Paso del Norte Trackworks place a final layer of sealant on two overpasses which were recently re-surfaced and outfitted with rails as part of the El Paso Streetcar Project.
To accommodate the work, Stanton Street and Oregon Street are scheduled to be closed to all traffic between Yandell Drive and Wyoming Avenue beginning at approximately 9am on Wednesday, September 20, 2017.
Both overpasses are scheduled to re-open on Friday, September 22, 2017, according to the Camino Real Regional Mobility Authority which is managing construction of the 4.8 mile streetcar project which will run from South El Paso to Downtown to the UTEP area.
Campbell Street, Kansas Street, Mesa Street, El Paso Street and Santa Fe Street will remain open to north-south traffic over I-10 during this closure.
