Drivers will have to plan ahead before heading out to Downtown El Paso starting Monday.

Representatives with the El Paso Streetcar project said Stanton and Oregon are set to close over Interstate 10 for rail work.

Commuters coming into and leaving from Downtown El Paso are encouraged to take an alternate route.

Stanton Street and Oregon Street will close to all traffic between Yandell Drive and Wyoming Avenue in Downtown El Paso on Monday.
