The Border West Expressway project will provide an alternate route for I-10 and will address needed improvements to safely guide the region’s growth and development.
The project is located west of downtown El Paso, south of I-10 and extends approximately 7.4 miles from Racetrack Drive near Doniphan Road and New Mexico 273 East to US 54, to one mile east of Park Street.
The Project includes the following elements:
- Construction of a four-lane, controlled access tolled facility from Racetrack Drive to the end of the existing Loop 375, in the vicinity of Santa Fe Street, a distance of approximately 5.6 miles.
- Existing lanes from Santa Fe Street to Park Street will provide access to local traffic and will remain non-tolled.
- Multi-ramp interchanges connecting Executive Center Boulevard and Spur 1966.
- New multi-ramp interchange to connect Loop 375 with Paisano Drive and Delta Street, providing eastbound and westbound access to the city’s center.
Abrams-Kiewit has broken the project into four work areas to sequence the construction of the project.
- Work Area 1 – Coles-Paisiano Interchange
- Work Area 2 – Racetrack Dr to Spur 1966
- Work Area 3 – Spur 1966 to Paso del Norte Bridge
- Work Area 4 – Downtown Loop 375 Reconstruction
Construction will begin in work areas 1 and 2.
