EL PASO, Texas - Country Club Road will remained closed between Love Road and Doniphan Drive on Monday, Aug. 25, due to bad weather.

The stretch of road was expected to open in time for school Monday but due to the recent rains- work has been delayed, according to city officials with the engineering and construction department.

Officials said they will work through the weekend, weather permiting.

In a newsletter project manager Geoffrey Espineli said, "I apologize for the inconvenience. However, please know that we are doing everything the weather will allow to get that important stretch of roadway opened as soon as possible."
