The iconic Cincinnati Street and Kern Place areas, near UTEP on the West Side, are scheduled for some changes.

An article at El Paso Herald Post online says plans call for:

The project scope includes street reconstruction, resurfacing, increased parking, sidewalk reconstruction and widening, traffic calming, street lighting and landscaping along the portion of Cincinnati and Glory Road/Baltimore streets located between Oregon and Stanton. - EP Herald Post

Approximately $2.8 million dollars has been allocated for the project which, according to the Herald Post, "aims to create new economic development opportunities by combining public art, urban design, and neighborhood revitalization strategies."

El Paso doesn't really need any more construction for us to have to work around but, this project sounds pretty cool and these areas could certainly use a little love. Construction should start up within the next month or so and be finished, hopefully, by the end of the year.
