Road Closures For West El Paso This Week

138052215
John Rodriguez

The City of El Paso is continuing to grow. To maintain this growth, construction is a necessary evil for people in the city. Find out where, when and what hours Eastside streets will have construction this week.

The City of El Paso is working hard to make the streets better and easier for people to travel on in the future. Unfortunately, this means for the next few months and maybe years we will be dealing with more traffic than normal on various sides of town.

Please follow the detour signs in place on all projects. All work is dependent upon weather conditions.
