Hallelujah! El Paso drivers finally get some relief from the traffic congestion that has plagued their west side commute for the last 8 months.

The West Paisano to Doniphan connection, which had been closed in both directions between Sunland Park Drive and Executive Center since last June, has reopened.

For now, Paisano will continue be one lane in each direction like the way it was before last summer's closure.

You will not, however, be able to access Interstate 10 like before. That connection remains under construction, and does not have a completion date yet.
