US62/180 (Montana Ave) Widening Phase 1 Project

The US 62/180 (Montana Avenue) widening project is a part of a larger Fort Bliss program to improve the network of roadways around and through the southeastern vicinity of U.S. Army Fort Bliss.

This project is phase one of the proposed improvements of the overall Montana Schematic. The project is 4.9 miles and requires 200 ft. of additional right of way to accommodate the improvements. The construction start date began March 18 and the duration of the project will be 2.5 years for its completion.

The project begins at Global Reach Drive and ends at Tierra Este Road.

The project includes the following:

• Construct 6 lane freeway from Lee Trevino Drive to Tierra Este Road
• Construct 3 lane northbound and southbound frontage road from George Dieter Drive to Tierra Este Road
• Construct new interchanges at Global Reach Drive, Lee Trevino Drive, George Dieter Drive, Wooster Lane, Saul Kleinfeld Drive, and State Loop 375
• Construct overpass bridges at Lee Trevino Drive, George Dieter Drive, and Wooster Lane
• Construct underpass structures at Saul Kleinfeld Drive and State Loop 375
• Construct Hike & Bike lane north of the westbound frontage road from Global Reach Drive to State Loop 375

The overall project has four phases and construction will not impede traffic through the majority of it.

The first phase requires approximately 10 months and focuses on construction of the westbound frontage roads. This construction will have no impact to the traveling public since that part of the project is located outside the existing lanes of traffic.

Upon completion of the westbound frontage road, plans include diverting westbound traffic to the new lanes then beginning construction on the main lanes. Plans also include constructing all intersections in quadrants to allow traffic to pass through at all times.
