Far East El Paso Streets to witness Major road improvements

LNEP,

The Camino Real Regional Mobility Authority (CRRMA) recently had a productive meeting on to move forward with the design and development phase of five road projects in the far eastern part of El Paso County.

CRRMA’s Mobility Plan

All five of the road projects are in the CRRMA’s 2013 El Paso County Mobility Plan. The overall plan includes a list of 16 projects totaling about $400 million.

“The point of that plan was that the county and TXDOT identified a slate of projects that were high priority projects but didn’t have funding available,” said Raymond Telles, executive director for CRRMA.

In an effort to get funding quicker, in 2013 the Texas Legislature authorized El Paso County to impose an additional $10 vehicle registration fee. “That means it can only be used on transportation projects in the El Paso region,” Telles said.

A Step by Step Project

The first project includes widening Eastlake Boulevard to six lanes from Interstate 10 to Darrington Road. Telles said the design process for this project alone would cost about $2.5 million.

The second project includes extending Eastlake Boulevard all the way to Horizon Boulevard. This project is expected to cost about $1.5 million in design costs.
