TxDOT breaks ground on Sun Bowl Drive project
By: Jesse Martinez
EL PASO, Texas The Texas Department of Transportation began a construction project that will make it easier and safer to get to and from the University of Texas at El Paso.
TxDOT crews broke ground on the Sun Bowl Drive project Monday where they will begin work to widen the road and add a roundabout at the intersection of Sun Bowl Drive and Glory Road.
"We're going to take a lot of mountain, a lot of rock and at the same time go from two lanes to four lanes and things like bike lanes to pedestrian lanes for people to walk," said Ted Houghton of TxDOT.
Houghton said crews will also be adding more lighting to make the road safer.
