The ongoing streetcar project will be bringing some changes to the westside’s Cincinnati entertainment district.

El Paso City Council to move funding around in order to piggyback off the trolley line construction and do things like beautify the district and make safety improvements. They decided to do the improvements while the streets are torn up for the trolley project to save time and money.

Some of the improvements include widening the sidewalks along Cincinnati Street, adding landscaping and overhead string lights, and constructing large, lighted archways to welcome visitors to the restaurants and bars. Not everyone is happy about the rush to improve the Cincinnati area.

Newly-elected City Rep. Alexsandra Annello said by doing the improvements this way, the city was awarding the Cincinnati work to the trolley construction contractors without sending it out for bid, but City Attorney Sylvia Borunda Firth said there was nothing legally wrong with the move.

The Cincinnati improvements will cost a total of $3.1 million. The money was already set aside for District 1 back in 2013.
