Streetcar Work Requires Alternate Routes for Motorists on Franklin, Stanton

Utility work associated with the El Paso Streetcar Project will require some motorists to use alternate routes in Downtown El Paso next week. Meanwhile, street and lane closures continue at other location along the 4.8 mile route.

Beginning this week, Franklin Avenue will be closed to all eastbound traffic from El Paso Street to Oregon Street. Oregon Street will be reduced to one lane in each direction at Franklin at that time as well. Motorists who typically use that section of Franklin Avenue should consider using Missouri Avenue as an alternate route.

Using Wyoming Avenue as an eastbound alternate will help motorists avoid getting caught-up in the existing closures of Main Drive and San Antonio Avenue at Santa Fe Street. This closure is expected to last approximately four weeks.

Work also continues in the intersection of Franklin Avenue and Stanton Street where lane reductions are in place. Because Stanton is closed to all traffic at Wyoming, motorists who typically use Stanton Street to access I-10 west, should consider an alternate route, such as taking Stanton Street to Missouri Avenue to Mesa Street to Yandell Drive to I-10 west.

This closure is expected to last approximately four weeks.

As work progresses, Stanton Street will be closed as far south as Franklin, in the coming weeks. An exact date for that closure has not yet been announced.

Kansas Street remains closed to all traffic between Texas Avenue and San Antonio Avenue. San Antonio Avenue is closed to thru traffic between Stanton Street and Campbell Street.

Father Rahm Avenue remains closed to traffic between Santa Fe and Kansas. As part of the El Paso Streetcar project, new sidewalks will be installed along Father Rahm Avenue between Kansas Street and Santa Fe Street. Beginning this week, crews will begin replacing sidewalks one block at a time.

Sidewalk closures will begin this week on the south side of Father Rahm between Kansas and Stanton. Crews will work within that block removing the existing sidewalk, preparing the ground and installing the new sidewalk.

Lane Closures at Other Locations

  • Yandell Drive at Stanton Street
  • Santa Fe Street between Franklin Avenue and San Antonio Avenue
  • Kansas Street from Paisano Drive to Father Rahm Avenue
  • First Avenue from Campbell Street to Kansas Street
  • Intermittent lane closures on Oregon Street from River Avenue to Glory Road
  • Intermittent lane closures on Stanton Street from River Avenue to Baltimore Drive

First Shipment of Rail for El Paso Streetcar Project Arrives

The first shipment of steel rail on which El Paso’s streetcars will run has arrived in the Sun City. Each length of rail is 59 feet long and weighs approximately 2,300 pounds. About 900 pieces will be used throughout the entire project.

“Other than the historic streetcars themselves, there is no more symbolic element of this project than the rail,” said Raymond Telles, Executive Director of the Camino Real Regional Mobility Authority. “After months of utility relocation work, this marks an important milestone in this project as we prepare for laying track this summer.”

rail-meme-05Design engineers selected “girder rail” for the El Paso Streetcar project. Unlike the rails traditionally used by railroads in the United States, this type of rail includes a special flange in which the wheels sit.

Developed in 1852, “girder rail” has been extensively used by streetcar projects around the world. Slightly modified “block rail” will be used on bridges.

The girder rail, manufactured in Austria, was carried by ship to the Port of Houston. From there, it was then brought by train to El Paso.

Some curved pieces and other specialty pieces are being brought to El Paso by truck. The block rail was manufactured in the U.S.

Crews expect to begin laying the rail by June. That work will include construction of a concrete slab within streets along the route. The rail will be brought from its current storage location to the construction site where several of the 59-foot long pieces will be welded together and embedded in the slab.

The rail will also be surrounded by a heavy-gauge rubber boot which will insulate the rail and reduce noise and vibration.

As part of the El Paso Streetcar project, new sidewalks will be installed along Father Rahm Avenue between Kansas Street and Santa Fe Street. Beginning this week, crews will begin replacing sidewalks one block at a time. Sidewalk closures will begin this week on the south side of Father Rahm between Kansas and Stanton.

Crews will work within that block removing the existing sidewalk, preparing the ground and installing the new sidewalk.

Father Rahm Avenue remains closed to traffic between Santa Fe and Kansas

Yandell Drive remains reduced to one lane at Stanton Street. However, beginning this week motorists will be required to travel in the far right lane of Yandell Drive rather than the far left lane. Stanton Street will be closed from Wyoming to Montana

Work Underway at Other Locations

  • Kansas Street remains closed between Texas and San Antonio Street

El Paso Streetcar work shifts to Wyoming Steet; Arizona, Texas Avenues Re-Open

As utility relocation work associated with the El Paso Streetcar project requires the closure of some key streets, motorists seeking east-west alternate routes near Downtown El Paso can expect some relief starting this week.

Beginning on Wednesday, April 5, 2016, Wyoming Avenue will be reduced to one lane at Stanton Street. Wyoming Avenue carries vehicles which use Exit 19/Downtown off of Interstate 10 East.  Motorists are encouraged to consider alternate routes including exiting I-10 at Exit 18B/Porfirio Diaz Street and accessing Downtown by taking Franklin Avenue to Durango Street to Overland Avenue.

Yandell Drive remains reduced to one lane at Stanton Street. Because Yandell carries vehicles which use the Exit 19A/Mesa Street off-ramp, motorists coming from I-10 West are encouraged to continue using alternate routes, by exiting at Copia Street, Piedras Street or Cotton Street.

Stanton Street remains reduced to one lane between Wyoming and Yandell. It is closed between Yandell and Nevada.

Also on Wednesday, Arizona Avenue, a one-way street westbound, will re-open to traffic at Stanton Street. Rio Grande Avenue, a one-way street eastbound, re-opened in late March. Together, Arizona and Rio Grande provide motorists an alternate to Montana Avenue which is closed at Stanton Street

San Antonio Avenue remains closed to thru-traffic at Kansas Street while Kansas Street is closed to thru-traffic between Myrtle and San Antonio Avenue. These closures are expected to remain through the end of the month. Texas Avenue has re-opened to east-west traffic at Stanton Street, which can be used as an alternate to San Antonio.

Santa Fe Street remains reduced to one lane in each direction between Franklin Avenue and San Antonio Avenue. San Antonio Avenue is closed to thru traffic at Santa Fe Street

Father Rahm Avenue remains closed to eastbound and westbound traffic between Santa Fe Street and Kansas Street. At this time, all north-south streets are open to traffic at Father Rahm.

Other Lane closures are in place at the following locations:

  • Kansas Street between Paisano and Father Rahm Avenue
  • Kansas Street between Overland and First
  • Oregon Street between Arizona Avenue and Glory Road
  • Motorists and pedestrians will encounter intermittent lane and sidewalk closures at various locations along the 4.8 mile route as crews begin working on the foundations for poles which will support the Overhead Contact System which will power the streetcars. Work at those locations will take less than a day and will be temporarily patched before crews leave these works zones.

The Camino Real Regional Mobility Authority continues its outreach efforts by providing updates to neighborhood and community groups as work continues to advance on the El Paso Streetcar project. The CRRMA has scheduled an open house from 5:30 to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, April 12, 2016, at Sacred Heart Church, 602 S. Oregon Street.

Streetcar Project Modifies Work Schedule for Papal Visit

The Camino Real Regional Mobility Authority (CRRMA) has announced that contractors will modify their work schedule during the week of Pope Francis’ visit to Ciudad Juárez, both to ensure the safety of travelers and because of logistical realities associated with increased security.

Heightened security in South El Paso will make it difficult for work crews to access work zones and equipment yards during this period.

CRRMA officials have been advised to anticipate high volumes of traffic around streetcar work zones near the University of Texas at El Paso as individuals seek to attend the Catholic Diocese of El Paso’s “Two Nations, One Faith” event at the Sun Bowl.

Much of the utility work that is presently underway involves using heavy machinery to dig deep trenches in streets and sidewalks. Based upon the estimates of tens-of-thousands of individuals travelling through South El Paso, contractors will take extra steps to secure construction sites, remove heavy machinery and close trenches where possible.

The following road closures will remain in place during the papal visit:

  • Kansas Street from Texas Avenue to San Antonio Avenue.
  • Father Rahm Avenue from Santa Fe Street to Kansas Street.

The following streets will be temporarily re-opened during the week of the papal visit:

  • All north-south streets crossing Father Rahm Avenue will re-open.
  • Stanton Street will re-open from River Avenue to Arizona Avenue, but limited lane closures will remain in place in that area. A complete closure of Stanton Street from Montana Avenue to River Avenue is scheduled to begin following the Pope’s visit.

Work will return to a full schedule on Monday, February 22, 2016.
