Construction on Pebble Hills lighting project begins Monday

Starting Monday, the city will begin construction of the Pebble Hills arterial lighting project.

The project, which is funded by the 2013 street infrastructure plan, will provide the following amenities to Pebble Hill Boulevard, between Joe Battle Boulevard and John Hayes Street:

  • Furnish and install new street lighting from Joe Battle to John Hayes
  • Modifications to existing medians and additions of new medians
  • Installation of new trees and landscaping for the medians as well as an irrigation system

Motorists can expect lane closures until late into the summer, when the project is scheduled to be completed.

People living along Pebble Hills Boulevard say safety is a big concern because the road is sparsely lit right now.

"I go to the dog park every other day and there's always an accident so, I mean, it would help," said east El Paso resident Chanel Washington.

The project is expected to cost about $1.5 million.
