Upper Valley Traffic Study
The Upper Valley Traffic Study was conducted to evaluate mobility needs due to expected residential and commercial growth within the study area and in the areas adjacent, including northwest El Paso and populated areas along the Texas and New Mexico State Line. Forecast development included existing and planned connections to the Santa Teresa port of entry, residential infill, new entertainment complexes, and proposed roadway improvements. WPM identified improvements expected to be needed in horizon years of 2017, 2025, and 2035. Phased improvements will be designed to maintain a level of service (LOS) C or better at all times during the study horizon. All improvements recommended were evaluated using federal guidelines that will allow the city to seek and secure federal funding. The study incorporated solutions that recognize and preserve the character of the neighborhoods within the study area.
