Stanton, Oregon I-10 Overpasses to Close Monday for Streetcar Rail Work

Commuters coming into and leaving from Downtown El Paso are encouraged to consider alternate routes beginning next week as crews from Paso del Norte Trackworks begin laying key portions of rail for the El Paso Streetcar Project.

Stanton Street and Oregon Street will close to all traffic between Yandell Drive and Wyoming Avenue in Downtown El Paso on Monday, May 1, 2017, according to the Camino Real Regional Mobility Authority.

Simultaneous closures are necessary to accommodate the placement of rail and specially formulated concrete on overpasses which will carry the streetcar line across Interstate 10.

Lane restrictions will also be in place on Yandell Drive and Wyoming Avenue at that time. This work is scheduled to take approximately eight weeks to complete.

Morning Detour Routes into Downtown El Paso

To avoid this work zone and other streetcar work zones, motorists should consider the following alternate routes into Downtown El Paso:

From West El Paso and Upper Valley

  • I-10 Exit 16/Executive Center Boulevard to Paisano Drive into Downtown.
  • I-10 Exit 18B/Franklin Avenue to Durango Street
  • I-10 Exit 19/Downtown, turn right on Santa Fe Street to

From East El Paso, Central El Paso and Mission Valley

  • I-10 Exit 20/Cotton Street south to Texas Avenue
  • I-10 Exit 19B/Downtown, turn left on Kansas Street, Mesa Street or Santa Fe Street
  • Loop 375 César Chávez Border Highway to Campbell Street

Evening Detour Routes out of Downtown El Paso

To avoid this work zone and other streetcar work zones, motorists should consider the following alternate routes out of Downtown El Paso:

To West El Paso and Upper Valley

  • Santa Fe Street north to Yandell Drive to I-10 West
  • Campbell Street north to Missouri Avenue to Santa Fe Street to I-10 West
  • Paisano Drive east to Executive Center Boulevard to I-10 West

To East El Paso, Central El Paso and Mission Valley

  • Campbell Street to I-10 East
  • Texas Avenue to Cotton Street to I-10 East
  • Kansas Street south of Loop 375 César Chávez Border Highway

While North Stanton Street remains reduced to a single northbound lane between Yandell Drive and Cincinnati Avenue, beginning on Monday, May 1, 2017, northbound traffic will be moved from the east side of the street to the west side of the street between Montana Avenue and Rim Road. Northbound traffic between Rim Road and Cincinnati Avenue was moved to the west side of the street on April 24.

These changes in traffic pattern is necessary to give crews from Paso del Norte Trackworks room to safely construct boarding platforms and complete paving along Stanton Street.

All cross-streets between Schuster Avenue and Cincinnati Avenue have re-opened at Stanton Street. Meanwhile, Hague Road, Crosby Avenue and Rio Grande Avenue remain closed to thru traffic immediately west of Stanton. Intermittent closures of cross-streets will continue as rolling paving operations continue along some parts of Stanton Street.

Stanton Street is scheduled to re-open to north-south traffic between Crosby Avenue and Cincinnati Avenue by the end of May and between Yandell Drive and Crosby Avenue by the end of June.

Trolley Crews Advancing: Mesa Lanes Reduced as Franklin Avenue work Shifts East

Some of the most complex and intricate work associated with the El Paso Streetcar Project is advancing on Franklin Avenue where motorists, pedestrians and cyclists will encounter new traffic patterns beginning on Friday, February 17, 2017, according to the Camino Real Regional Mobility Authority.

Crews from Paso del Norte Trackworks have completed installation of a rail switching mechanism in the intersection of Franklin Avenue and Oregon Street. That switch is one of two links between the Uptown and Downtown loops. Crews have also installed rail along Franklin Avenue between Santa Fe Street and Oregon Street.

On February 17, Franklin Avenue will re-open to eastbound traffic between Oregon Street and Santa Fe Street. Oregon Street will reopen to north-south traffic at Franklin, at that time as well.

Beginning on Tuesday, February 21, 2017, Franklin Avenue will be reduced to a single eastbound lane between Oregon Street and Kansas Street. Mesa Street will be reduced to one lane in each direction at Franklin Avenue. Left turns from Mesa Street to Franklin Avenue will not be permitted. These closures are necessary as crews lay rail along this section of Franklin.

Crews will also place the second track switch which links the Uptown and Downtown loops in the intersection of Franklin Avenue and Stanton Street. Because of the complexity of this work, Stanton Street will be closed to thru traffic between Main Drive and Franklin Avenue. In the coming weeks, the Stanton Street closure will switch to between Franklin Avenue and Missouri Avenue.

All told, work in this area is scheduled to take approximately twelve weeks to complete.

As crews continue laying rail and pouring concrete along North Stanton Street, closures of the following cross-streets will be required on the following dates at the following times:

  • Boston Avenue closed at Stanton Street from 1am to 9am on Wednesday, February 15, 2017.
  • Kerbey Avenue closed at Stanton Street from Wednesday, February 22, to Tuesday, February 28, 2017;During this period, University Avenue will temporarily re-open as an alternate east-west route.
  • Cincinnati Avenue closed at Stanton Street from 1am to 9am on Thursday, February 23, 2017.
  • Rim Road closed at Stanton Street from 1am to 9am on Tuesday, February 28, 2017; Motorists who use Scenic Drive and Rim

These dates could change pending weather.

During the week of February 13, 2017, overnight lane closures along I-10 through Downtown El Paso will not take place. They will resume during the week of February 20 and be in effect Sundays through Thursdays from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m.

As work continues along the 4.8 mile route, motorists, pedestrians and cyclists should expect to encounter the following which will remain in place during the week of February 13, 2017:

Street Closures

  • Stanton Street between Yandell Drive and Baltimore Drive (open to northbound traffic only)
  • Baltimore Drive, Robinson Avenue, University Avenue, Blanchard Avenue, Blacker Avenue, Hague Road, Crosby Avenue, Cliff Drive, and Rio Grande Avenue immediately west of Stanton Street.
  • Santa Fe Street between Father Rahm Avenue and Paisano Drive
  • Rio Grande Avenue between Oregon Street and El Paso Street
  • Arizona Avenue between Mesa Street and Oregon Street

Lane Restrictions

  • Kansas Street between Franklin Avenue and Father Rahm Avenue
  • Santa Fe Street between Missouri Avenue and Paisano Drive
  • Oregon Street between Yandell Drive and Nevada Avenue
  • Campbell Street between Paisano Drive and First Avenue

Later this month, southbound traffic on Kansas Street will shift to the right site of the street as crews resurface the existing travel lanes. San Antonio Avenue and Texas Avenue will close immediately east of Kansas Street to allow crews to complete concrete paving of those intersections.
