The El Paso Streetcar Project has been causing headaches for El Pasoans. Now, Sun Metro will have detours for bus routes the next 2 weeks as well. Find out where here.

Starting this week, the El Paso Streetcar project will be forcing Sun Metro to change some of their bus routes until the end of this month. From January 16th through January 31st, 27 routes in the downtown area will be detoured. These detours will change as new tracks will be laid down on Santa Fe Street and Paisano Drive and the construction on the project progresses. As the detours change, Sun Metro will notify people to let them know these changes. Be advised that there may be traffic delays on the Sun Metro routes, especially during rush hour or peak times.
