Description:

The purpose of the proposed project is to address regional system linkage and system capacity by providing an alternative route to I-10. The proposed Northeast Parkway would complete a route around the northeast side of El Paso suitable for truck and other through traffic, diverting traffic from the city center.

The proposed Northeast Parkway is planned as a new location four-lane facility, including grade separations, interchanges and bicycle and pedestrian accommodations. The proposed project would be constructed in two phases, Phase 1 being the construction of a Super 2 facility – a two lane rural highway with periodic passing lanes. More information about the project, including an online survey, is available on the project page.
