The orange barrel demons are back. 

It's a storm drain project this time, according to the El Paso Herald Post:

El Paso Water will close Scenic Drive from Wheeling Avenue to Alabama, to all traffic, for several weeks to complete the next phase of the Kentucky Dam stormwater improvement project. The $3.9 million project will help reduce flooding in Central El Paso. The project will increase the capacity of nearby ponds and add piping that keeps water off the streets by directing stormwater into the dam. - El Paso Herald Post

There will be some other traffic headaches in the area. Streets between Scenic Drive and Alabama, as well as streets between Wheeling and Altura, will be restricted to local traffic only. You can still access Scenic Drive by going around the Alabama Street closure and taking Wheeling. You can see a map of the affected area(s) here.
