Public Meeting - Spur 1966 Project

Where: University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP)
El Paso Natural Gas Conference Center
Wiggins Road
El Paso, TX 79924
(across from the UTEP Library)
When: Tuesday, May 1, 2012
6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Purpose: The purpose of the meeting is to provide information about the proposed project and gather input from the public.

The proposed Spur 1966 project is a new connection between Schuster Avenue on the UTEP campus and Paisano Drive via a bridge over I-10. The project length is approximately 0.7 miles.

The proposed project would improve connections and traffic flow between the UTEP Campus, surrounding medical facilities, Sunset Heights and Kern Place neighborhoods, and Mesa Street with Paisano Drive, as well as creating an additional route to and from the downtown area. The proposed project will eliminate the need for UTEP-bound traffic to cut through the adjacent Sunset Heights neighborhood to access the UTEP facility.
