The street closure will take place on Thursday, Dec. 15, 2016, on Sunland Park Drive near Doniphan Drive beginning at 6 a.m.

The work is necessary to allow for emergency repairs to the railroad crossing. The City of El Paso Streets and Maintenance Department and Union Pacific Railroad are collaborating on this project.

Proper traffic control measures will be in place to direct the traveling public through this area for this period. Traffic will be detoured through nearby streets and as always you may want to find an alternate route due to the construction in the area.
