UPDATE - The construction of these raised medians are meant to increase safety on the roads at bi-directional turn lanes, according to TXDOT. The medians are being built in about a dozen other areas besides Doniphan Dr, including Zaragoza Rd, Dyer St, and Montana Ave, according to TXDOT spokesperson Jennifer Wright.
The project started in April of 2022, and will be completed later on in 2023, said Wright.
EL PASO, Texas (KVIA) -- El Paso drivers have noticed an increase in construction at the portion of Doniphan Dr. between Thorn Ave. and Artcraft Rd.
People have noticed improvements in the median of Doniphan, including some lights being installed.
On the Texas Department of Transportation's website, there's a Doniphan Drive corridor plan listed that you can check here. This corridor project goes between the Texas/News Mexico state line and Racetrack Drive in El Paso.
There is no confirmation from TxDOT if it's the same one El Paso drivers have noticed.
ABC-7 is working on getting more information about this project.
