Country Club Road will be closed to all traffic between Doniphan Drive and Love Road beginning on Monday, November 18, 2013. The complete closure is expected to last until March 2014. 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.
This unanticipated complete closure of the roadway is necessary following the discovery of buried telephone lines and related infrastructure that were not previously identified by AT&T.
“Knowing what an inconvenience this will cause for residents of the Upper Valley, the City of El Paso is very disappointed that this complete closure will be necessary,” said Gilbert Andujo, P.E., division manager for the city’s Engineering and Construction Management Department. “However, given the unforeseen circumstances, any other approach would dramatically prolong the project to reconstruct Country Club Road. We are committed to completing this project on time.”
Motorists who use Country Club Road are reminded to use the following detours routes rather than cutting through residential neighborhoods:
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.
