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, reconnects adjacent neighborhoods to enhance livability, provides economic opportunity, and facilitates 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
