Streetcar Work Continues on Kansas St; Pedestrians Reminded about Crosswalks

The Camino Real Regional Mobility Authority is reminding Downtown pedestrians to cross the Kansas Street work zone only at designated crosswalks as rail work continues there.

Crews from Paso del Norte Trackworks have kept existing crosswalks open or placed temporary crosswalks at the following locations along Kansas Street:

  • South side of Main Drive
  • South side of Texas Avenue
  • North side of Myrtle Avenue
  • South side of Overland Avenue

The above list is subject to change as construction advances along Kansas Street in the coming months.

Kansas Street remains reduced to a single southbound lane between Franklin Avenue and Overland. Main Drive, Mills Avenue and San Antonio Avenue remain closed to thru traffic between Stanton and Kansas Street

In the coming weeks, this work zone will extend south along Kansas Street to Paisano Drive.

In advance of underground utility relocation work there, lane widths will be reduced on Glory Road between Mesa Street and Oregon Street from Tuesday, October 18, to Friday, October 21, 2016.

To accommodate underground utility work there, Santa Fe Street will be closed between 8 pm and 4 am on Monday, October 17, and Tuesday, October 18, 2016.

To allow track work to advance along Father Rham Avenue, El Paso Street and Stanton Street will be temporarily closed at Father Rahm Avenue from 2 am to 5 am on Sunday, October 16, and from 2 am to 5 am on Tuesday, October 18, 2016.

Lane restrictions at those locations will resume following this work.
