To Help With I-10 Traffic, Sun Metro Offers New Westside Routes
With all the construction and congestion on the Westside of El Paso, Sun Metro is now offering new Westside routes to help alleviate some of the traffic issues.
With the Go10 infrastructure reconstruction project happening on I-10 between the Executive Boulevard exit and the North Mesa exit, traffic is a nightmare. It seems everyday there is a new accident, crawling traffic and more happening in the area. Not to mention the Border Highway West extension happening at the exact same time.
Sun Metro is working to try and give El Pasoans different commenting options to hep out with the traffic problem. Sun Metro will offer four new routes in the areas in hopes that it will help ease the problem, even just a little bit.
The new routes will help passengers who live on Westside connect with the Brio buses and other parts of El Paso.
