Country Club Rd. Reconstruction

 

CURRENT INFORMATION

Parts of Country Club Road reopen to two-way local traffic

EL PASO – Residents of neighborhoods along Country Club Road can once again travel eastbound or westbound on Country Club between Santa Teresita Drive and Love Road.
“Residents of these neighborhoods have patiently waited as contractors have diligently worked to reconstruct this vital thoroughfare,” said Gilbert Andujo, street and drainage division manager for the City of El Paso’s Engineering and Construction Management Department. “As they use the new roadway, though, we are urging residents to be cautious since work continues along the roadside.”
For the protection of construction workers, through traffic is reminded to continue using the following detours routes:
 

 
Country Club Road remains closed to all traffic between Doniphan Drive and Love Road. Residents of the closed portion of Country Club Road and Yucca Place will have access to their property at all times, as will police, fire, and other emergency services.
 
The reconstruction of Country Club Road was designed to accommodate the replacement of aging water and wastewater lines. Ground was broken on the project in August of 2013. The project is expected to be completed in February 2015.

PROJECT BACKGROUND

Construction Rendering

For decades, Country Club Road has served as key thoroughfare linking the Upper Valley and Westside. However, increasing traffic and aging utility infrastructure have necessitated re-construction of the busy two-lane road.

When it’s completed, this project will improve traffic flow on Country Club Road by adding a center two-way left turn lane, adding a traffic circle at Memory Lane, and adding right turn lanes at Montoya Road. Another reason this project needs to be done now is to accommodate the replacement of gas, water, and sewer utilities. The length of the project runs from Doniphan Drive to River Run Street.
Completion is expected in early 2015.
