Notice of availability of finding of no significant impact (FONSI) - Borderland Expressway Project

Purpose: This notice advises the public that the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) has issued a finding of no significant impact (FONSI) for the proposed Borderland Expressway Project (formerly known as the Northeast Parkway Project) and that the FONSI is available for public review.

The proposed project would be a new location roadway from State Loop 375 (SL 375) east of the Railroad Drive Overpass to Farm-to-Market (FM) 3255 (Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard) at the Texas-New Mexico (TX-NM) state line in El Paso County, Texas.

The FONSI and approved final environmental assessment (EA) are on file and available for inspection Monday through Friday between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. MST at the TxDOT El Paso District Office, 13301 Gateway Boulevard West El Paso, Texas 79928-5410, (915) 790-4359.

For further information or to request a copy of the FONSI and/or approved final EA, please contact Gus Sanchez, TxDOT Project Manager, at (915) 790-4233 or by email.

Accessibility: The FONSI and EA are written 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 have a disability and need assistance, special arrangements can be made to accommodate most needs. If you need interpretation or translation services or you are a person with a disability who requires an accommodation to review the FONSI or EA, please contact the Public Information Office, El Paso District, at (915) 790-4340 or (915) 790-4341 no later than 4 p.m. MST, at least three business days before the date on which you would like to review the FONSI or EA. Please be aware that advance notice is required as some services and accommodations may require time for TxDOT to arrange.
