Mesa St. SH 20 Corridor Study

This traffic engineering and planning study will identify and evaluate all the various transportation aspects associated with the Mesa Street/SH 20 corridor. The study outcome will be a master plan of recommended short-, mid- and long-term multimodal solutions to upgrade the corridor.

Mobility-based aspects that will be studied include:

  • Crash-prone locations and analysis
  • Driver, pedestrian and bicyclist safety
  • Signalization and signage
  • Mass transit accommodation
  • Forecast traffic and travel demand through 2040
  • Access management
  • Potential design alternatives to upgrade Mesa Street/SH 20
  • Agency, stakeholder and public involvement

Study Limits

The study corridor spans approximately 9.8 miles. The initial study limits that spanned from Doniphan Drive (SH 20) to Texas Avenue (SH 20) were extended to include City of El Paso segment of Mesa Street from Texas Avenue (SH 20) to Cesar Chavez Border Highway (Loop 375).

Study Schedule

Prior data-gathering and research has included:

  • Crash tabulation
  • Environmental constraints mapping
  • Historic traffic count evaluations
  • Future traffic count estimating
  • Demographic trends
  • Outreach to municipalities, agencies, regional transportation-related offices and Mesa Street/SH 20 corridor stakeholders
  • Public meetings

Current study efforts include:

  • Design alternative/concept analyses
  • Traffic and travel demand evaluations
  • Alternative diagrammatic development
  • Agency coordination

The study will conclude with a recommended master plan in Spring 2018.
