The City of El Paso is continuing to grow. To maintain this growth, construction is a necessary evil for people in the city. Check out when and where on the westside El Paso streets will be closed 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.
