Purpose The TxDOT El Paso District is proposing improvements along 11.5 miles of Paisano Drive and 9.0 miles of Montana Avenue from Sunland Park Drive to Montana Avenue and from Paisano Drive to Loop 375, in El Paso County, Texas, a total distance of 21.5 miles.
Description The proposed Corridor Study will develop short-, mid-, and long-term improvements for multi-modal safety, connectivity, drainage, and transportation operations along Paisano Drive and Montana Avenue in El Paso County. In coordination with the City of El Paso 2016 Bike Plan, the corridor study will analyze the most imperative bicycle and pedestrian updates needed for the community. Short-term recommendations would take up to 5 years to implement, mid-term recommendations would take 5 to 10 years, and long-term recommendations would be implemented in 10+ years.
Accessibility The public meeting will be conducted in English and Spanish. If you need an interpreter or document translator because English or Spanish is not your primary language or you have difficulty communicating effectively in English or Spanish, one will be provided to you free of charge. 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 attend and participate in the public meeting, please contact the El Paso District Public Information Office at 915-790-4341 no later than 4 p.m. MST, Thursday, March 28, 2024.
