Purpose:

This notice is to advise the public that TxDOT has issued a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) proposed Zaragoza Port-of-Entry, Pan American Drive and Winn Road Build Improvements project from State Loop 375 to Zaragoza Port-of-Entry in El Paso County..

Description:

The proposed Zaragoza Port-of-Entry, Pan American Drive and Winn Road Build Improvements project would consist of widening the existing Winn Road between Pan American Drive and Southside Road to a 90-foot-wide four-lane divided facility with concrete pavement, raised medians, sidewalks, illumination, and drainage improvements. The proposed project would also involve construction of a new location roadway extension heading west and then north from Southside Road to connect the existing Winn Road to Rio Del Norte Drive. The proposed right-of-way for the Winn Road extension is also 90 feet wide and would have the same features as described above plus a bridge to accommodate stormwater across the Playa Intercepting Drain. Proposed right-of-way would be acquired between Pan American Drive and Rio Del Norte Drive for the widening of Winn Road and the extension of Winn Road, as described below. Proposed improvements to Pan American Drive would entail adding raised medians where none exist, adding illumination, landscaping, resurfacing the existing pavement, and restriping to four lanes..
