Drivers in the Mission Hills, Kern Place, Alexander and Rim Road neighborhoods will soon have an easier time driving.

Stanton Street’s two-way traffic will reopen Friday between Cincinnati Avenue and Schuster Avenue, according to the Camino Real Regional Mobility Authority.

When Stanton reopens to two-way traffic, it will function differently than before.

Stanton Street will now include on-street parking, one southbound travel lane, a two-way center turn lane, where the streetcar will run, one northbound lane and a two-way cycle track on the east side of the street.

Street markings are marked with temporary paint, which will be less rough than the planned permanent markings. The final markings for the bike facility will include thermoplastic green and white paint, dedicated bicycle traffic signals, vertical delineators to separate auto and cycle traffic and other pavement markings.

In order to protect the permanent pavement markings from damage by heavy machinery associated with the project, permanent pavement markings will be placed on all affected streets when the El Paso Streetcar Project is completed. In the meantime, temporary markings are being placed throughout the project.

Stanton will reopen to two-way traffic south of Schuster later this month.
