It may be the holidays, but that doesn't stop El Paso from continuing construction on our freeways and roads. See if your commute will be affected by any road construction or closures here.

Doesn’t matter when you’re traveling through the westside of El Paso, it looks like congestion is going to be an issue. Even the east side isn’t immune to the traffic and headaches.
