Neighborhood Traffic Management Program
The Neighborhood Traffic Management Program (NTMP) was adopted by the City of El Paso to evaluate traffic concerns to determine appropriate traffic calming measures in residential areas.
If you would like to inquire about traffic calming measures for your neighborhood, please contact the Neighborhood Traffic Management Program at (915) 212-0118 or through e-mail at: NTMP@elpasotexas.gov
The City of El Paso allows the placement of roadside memorial markers to remind passing motorists of the dangers of unsafe driving and to provide families with the opportunity to honor and remember loved ones who died in traffic collisions. The program was established in 2006 with a City Council approved amendment to Title 15 of the city code.
The initial application for a marker must be submitted by a member of the victim’s family. Families may request a memorial marker by submitting an application to the city’s Streets and Maintenance Department. In some instances, Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) is allowed to submit an application on the family’s behalf. The application fee is $124.
Applications are reviewed and approved by the Streets and Maintenance Department.
