ENGINEERING AND CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT DEPARTMENT
Good things come to those who wait. It's something we've all heard over and over. And it's something that's easy to say if you're not the one living next door to a disruptive, on-going construction project. That's why our community owes a debt of gratitude to our neighbors living along Country Club Road in the Upper Valley and Montwood Drive on the East Side.
 
They are patiently enduring detours, dust, and noisy machinery as the city of El Paso's Engineering and Construction Management Department completes projects to reconstruct portions of each roadway. Both projects will improve connectivity and increase safety for homes, businesses, motorists, pedestrians, and cyclists.
 
Both projects remain on schedule, meaning they'll be completed in early 2015.
 
In case you missed it, click here to read a guest editorial by interim city engineer Irene Ramirez explaining why these projects take so long to complete.

  • Keep all bins at least three feet apart from one another and from mailboxes, utility poles, and walls/fences
  • Keep bins five feet away from all vehicles
