A $19 million road construction project is complete ahead of schedule in one of El Paso County’s fastest growing communities.

The Eastlake Phase 2 project, which now extends the roadway from Darrington Rd. to Horizon Boulevard, will be celebrated with a ribbon-cutting ceremony.

Construction began in January 2017 and was completed almost 9 months ahead of the original schedule and on budget.

Eastlake Phase 2 was part of the 2013 El Paso County Comprehensive Mobility Plan project and provides another, much needed arterial in East El Paso County.

The project scope included reconstruction of existing roadway from Darrington Rd. to Desert Mist and the construction of a new 6 lane divided roadway from Desert Mist to Horizon Boulevard.

Funded through County Vehicle Registration Fees (VRF) and Horizon City Transportation Reinvestment Zone funds (TRZ), and managed by the Camino Real Regional Mobility Authority, this project utilized local funding mechanisms and exemplifies effective intergovernmental cooperation to improve regional mobility and transportation infrastructure.

The project was designed by CEA Group and was constructed by Jordan Foster. Both are El Paso-based firms.

DATE: April 11, 2018 TIME: 1:30 PM LOCATION: Intersection of Eastlake and Desert Mist Dr.
