Downtown Construction UPDATE; Effect on Sun Metro Operation

Downtown Construction Project reaches final stages
As part of the Central Business District Phase III initiative addressing the major reconstruction of several downtown streets, the intersection of Mesa and Main is now closed to traffic.

Construction at the intersection mobilized as of January 13, 2008 and will be closed for approximately 6-8 weeks to allow for the final necessary improvements to the utility connections.

The scope of work for the entire initiative has featured the replacement of existing asphalt pavement, sidewalks, driveways, existing traffic signals and street lighting. The improvement project also upgrades all existing water and sanitary sewer lines. The following streets were targeted in expediting this project: Construction on Main & Mesa Relocates Sun Metro from Plaza
Please note that during this time, Sun Metro will relocate from San Jacinto Plaza to the area surrounding the City of El Paso’s Main Public Library for 6 to 8 weeks or until construction on Main & Mesa is completed. Boarding locations will be relocated from San Jacinto Plaza to Missouri, Franklin and Oregon.

Sun Metro personnel will be on-site to assist passengers with questions, alternate boarding location maps will be posted at the Plaza, inside buses and flyers will be passed out to the public prior to the relocation.
