You have probably already seen this, usmc el paso, but if you haven't..this is just a map of all the projects that were approved in the $1 billion Mobility Plan that was approved last year. It also gives a time line as to when they should get started on these projects.

I haven't seen any new renderings of the projects, just these maps and the older renderings that have been posted on these forums.

El Paso freeways are good, the spahgetti bowl was built in the mid 70s, was the largest at time. It connects I-10, The Patriot Frwy and the Border Hwy (loop 375). It is also larger than the Big I in Abq. All Spahgetti Bowl ramps are two lanes while the big I are single lanes. The Big I seems like lots of waste of concrete. The I-10/Americas Interchange Stack will also be huge like the spahgetti bowl. Pictures from TXDOT look awesome. The The Patriot frwy/ Spur 601 interchange under construction is begining to look like another mini spahgetti bowl. El Paso freeways are in the right track!

In regards to observe's postings, He or she is totally wrong about El Paso, Ive been to abq many times, it is not larger nor does it have more amenties. People in abq have this thing going on- they want to act and look like a big city, which they're not. The abq metro area? consist of other counties and communites far from the city. El Paso? 260 square miles and an international metroplex with 3 million people. YES El Paso is LARGER and more urban.

TO OBERVE: STUPID? El Paso is larger (not that it matters) the El Paso Metro consist only of El Paso County, there are New Mexico communities that border the city limit and the county- Anthony Pop. 10,000- Chaparral-25,000, Sunland Park 20,000 they are not included in the El Paso Metro. which they should be. Estimates show that El Paso also has over 60,000 residents from Juarez that have duel residency and are not counted in the census. Goverment estimates that by 2012 El Paso will have a population of 950,000 due to Ft Bliss Expansion and the New Medical School. Abq metro is including 3 counties and small communites miles away. As far as the Big I- the spahgetti bowl is larger and more entertwined, only Dallas had a bigger stack at the time it was built. the Big I is more spread apart, doesn't mean its bigger. The I-10 Americas interchange will be even larger and nicer design than the dull Big I.

you are FUNNY! (maybe also weird) those are the estimates for EL PASO CITY COUNTY, That's it! again Abq includes all of central NM! almost all the state. Abq is a small trash can compared to El Paso. AnthonyNM, Sunland Prk,NM, Santa Teresa, NM, La Union, NM, Chamberino, NM Chaparral, NM, all next to the El Paso city and county limits- approx. population over 60,000 and not part of the El Paso metro, Abq included far away communites for its metro status to alocate federal goverment funds. kinda like welfare and goverment assistance. lol. get real! El Paso is Larger and more city and county populated

observe ; LOL you truly must be from abq! your behavior is like most dumb people in abq. How old are You? 15? Tall bdlgs, real cities?? etc. are you saying abq is a real city?? lol!! please!! for your info. been coast to coast- Favorite cities- San Antonio, TX, Austin, TX, Denver CO., San Francisco, CA, and Boston, MA. The only thing New Mexcio has going is the mountains that's it! OBSERVE all the facts of El Paso all over the internet. El Paso is El Paso- unlike abq that wants to be something its NOT! the airport is the only one in NM, remember there are 5 major cities in Texas which serve as hubs for el paso- I can go on and on to dispute your abq dumb opinions!

BY USMC: According to studies by the epwu the Greater El Paso Area which consists of El Paso & Dona Ana Counties will reach 1,052,000 inhabitants in the next two years. According to the article the Greater El Paso population was 927,000 in 2005 and will be adding about 25000 people per year over the next few years. Keep in mind that a lot of the growth will be fueled by the massive Ft Bliss expansion. The article also states that there will be between 2,000 to 2,500 high tech jobs created in part to the Future Combat Systems at Biggs.
