TxDOT El Paso District is proposing improvements along Interstate Highway 10 (I-10). The limits of the project are from Executive Center Boulevard to State Loop 478 (Copia Street) in El Paso County, Texas, and the project is referred to as the Downtown 10 project. The proposed project is approximately 5.7 miles in length.
TxDOT is requesting comments from the public regarding the proposed project and may be submitted by mail to the TxDOT El Paso District Office, Attn: Downtown 10, 13301 Gateway West, El Paso, Texas 79928-5410. Electronic comments may also be submitted by email to Downtown10@txdot.gov or through the VPM Site. Members of the public may also call (915) 209-0027 and leave recorded comments from Wednesday, Feb. 24, 2021, at 5 p.m. (MST) until Tuesday, March 16, 2021 at 11:59 p.m. (MST). All comments must be received, emailed, or postmarked on or before Tuesday, March 16, 2021. Responses to comments will be available online once prepared.
Based on input received during the last round of public outreach in 2020, TxDOT developed and evaluated several conceptual alternatives, and identified viable alternatives (including the No Build Alternative) to carry forward for further evaluation. The purpose of this second public meeting is to present the project progress and solicit input from the public on the preliminary alternative analysis and viable alternatives. Some alternatives would require additional right of way that could result in impacts to businesses and residential properties, displacements, impacts to historic districts and historic places/properties, and other environmental impacts. These impacts were considered when evaluating alternatives.
The VPM will be conducted in English. If you need an interpreter or document translator because English is not your primary language, or you have difficulty communicating effectively in English, one will be provided to you.

If you need interpretation or translation services or you are a person with a disability who requires an accommodation to attend and participate in the VPM, please contact (915) 201-9414 no later than 5 p.m. (MST), Friday, Feb. 19, 2021.
