 Construction Improvements to Barker Road, Vocational Pond  




El Paso, Texas: Project managers will host a public meeting Tuesday, May 14, 2013, at 6pm. concerning the construction improvements to Barker Road. The meeting will be held at Cedar Grove Elementary School gymnasium located at 218 Barker Road 



Construction crews will soon begin work reconstructing Barker Road and upgrading Vocational Pond to a dual-use park pond. The Barker Road portion of the project includes upgrades along 1,100 feet of the road north of J.C. Cramer Lane. The road will be completely reconstructed with asphalt pavement, new curbs and gutters, sidewalks, and ramps which comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act. A new underground storm sewer system as well as new water and wastewater lines will also be installed.


Nearby, Vocational Pond will be converted into a dual purpose park pond. Planned improvements include new sod, trees, shrubs, and an irrigation system. Sidewalks and ramps will also be installed at this site. Park amenities including benches, a table with chairs, and a pet waste station will also be installed.



The project is set to be completed by November 2013.  This meeting is intended to provide residents and individuals traveling through this area, the project details before construction commences. All interested individuals are encouraged to attend
