Item Title:Commissioner Pct. 2 - TxDOT Alternatives for Downtown I-10
Submitted By:David C. Stout, Commissioner, Pct. 2 (915) 546-2111
Subject:Discuss and take appropriate action to direct staff to prepare public comment on behalf of the County of El Paso to submit to TXDOT regarding the Downtown 10 project. 
TxDOT's El Paso District is holding the second virtual public meeting (VPM) for Downtown 10. The project is the first to stem from the District’s Reimagine I-10 Study and covers 5.7 miles on I-10 from Executive Center Boulevard to State Loop 478 (Copia Street).


Based on input received during the last round of public outreach in 2020, TxDOT developed and evaluated several conceptual alternatives, and identified viable alternatives (including the No Build Alternative) to carry forward for further evaluation. The purpose of this second public meeting is to present the project progress and solicit input from the public on the preliminary alternative analysis and viable alternatives. The TxDOT identified preferred alternatives would require additional right of way that could result in impacts to businesses and residential properties, displacements, impacts to historic districts and historic places/properties, and other environmental impacts. At some point following this public meeting and comment period, TxDOT plans to narrow its review of alternatives.


The VPM became available online beginning Wednesday, Feb. 24, 2021 at 5 p.m. (MST). The meeting consists of a virtual room and includes both audio and visual components. It will remain available for viewing until Tuesday, March 16, 2021, at 11:59 p.m. (MST).
