|When:||Thursday, Nov. 15, 2012
Open House: 4 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
Presentation: 6:30 p.m.
|Purpose:||The purpose of the hearing is to discuss the findings of the Draft Environmental Impact Statement, including the preferred alternative identified, and provide an opportunity for the public to provide comments on the proposed project.
|Description:||The proposed Loop 375 Border Highway West Extension Project is a four-lane controlled access toll facility that would begin at Racetrack Drive near Doniphan Road and New Mexico 273, west of downtown, to United States Highway (US) 54 east of downtown El Paso, a distance of approximately nine miles, of which approximately seven miles would be tolled. All existing lanes in the project footprint would remain non-tolled.
The proposed project is the result of previous studies which have identified a need for an alternate route for I-10 to address needed improvements to system capacity, reliability, and regional system linkage for the El Paso metropolitan area.
