Welcome to the Downtown Deck Plaza Feasibility Study Website.The Board of Directors of the Paso del Norte Community Foundation has established the Downtown Deck Plaza Foundation under its umbrella to support the vision for a Deck Plaza over I-10 in the downtown corridor. The Foundation is partnering with the City of El Paso to further advance the project. The City has received a $900,000 RAISE grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation to engage the community and work on the design and engineering for the project.
A Once-in-a-Generation Opportunity for El Paso.
Along with potential improvements to Interstate 10, comes an unprecedented opportunity to create a unique place for all El Pasoans that reflects El Paso’s rich heritage and culture, reconnecting adjacent neighborhoods to enhance livability, economic opportunity, and a shared sense of community for the binational region. Based upon the community input we’ve received so far, the project goals include creating the following:
- An authentic cultural crossroads
- Inviting sense of place
- Enhanced connectivity/accessibility
- Inclusive economic development
- Cutting-edge sustainability
Now, we need to hear from you!
Please take time to post comments on the interactive map, share your feedback about how the things that make El Paso great can help create a community space as unique as our community, keep up-to-date with project information, and stay informed on project meeting dates. We appreciate your interest and engagement in the project.
