Streets to Close for Work on Manhattan Heights Archway Project

Starting Monday, June 18, 2018, the City of El Paso’s Capital Improvement Department has scheduled temporary closure of Piedras Street at its intersection with San Jose Avenue.

The closure will allow for the installation of the Manhattan Heights Archway at the intersection, and is necessary to allow construction crews to complete their work efficiently and safely.

The temporary closure will take place from 8 p.m. to 4 a.m. and will last about a week.

The archway will provide a unique entrance to this Historic District, which was founded around 1912. The project includes the following amenities:

  • Concrete Footings
  • Column Aesthetics
  • Archway Letters
  • Electrical Preparation for potential future lighting

City officials say, “This Neighborhood Improvement project with an approximate $100,000 budget is primarily funded by the 2012 Quality Bond Program, and is part of the City of El Paso’s commitment to improve El Paso’s regional comprehensive transportation system.”

Appropriate signage and detours will be in place throughout the duration of the closure. Residents are encouraged to seek alternate routes throughout the closure, and the construction schedule, detours and closures may be modified to accommodate any unforeseen conditions or events.
