Horizon Boulevard (FM 1281) Corridor Master Plan

US 67 location map

The TxDOT El Paso District is developing a Corridor Master Plan for a 9.4-mile section of Horizon Boulevard (FM 1281) from Alameda Avenue (SH 20) to Ascension Street. Horizon Boulevard connects the communities of Socorro, Sparks, and Horizon City, as well as parks, schools, neighborhoods, and various businesses. Horizon Boulevard is expected to experience increased growth in the future, as many new developments along the corridor are currently in the planning or construction phases.

Primary Objective

To better prepare for future growth, TxDOT is developing a Corridor Master Plan to identify current and future transportation needs along Horizon Boulevard (FM 1281). The Corridor Master Plan:

  • Has defined existing transportation challenges and opportunities and will evaluate possible solutions
  • Will document and evaluate the community's future vision regarding transportation
  • Will develop a set of recommendations to enhance safety and mobility
  • Will consider drainage implications of potential improvements

The plan includes data collection, public involvement, analysis of current and future transportation needs, and identification of potential projects. A key outcome of this process will be the identification of a set of projects for short-, mid-, and long-term implementation.

Get Involved

Public involvement is a key element to the success of this Corridor Master Plan. The plan has been in the development process and includes three public meeting opportunities to coordinate with the public, stakeholders, elected/public officials, cities, counties, and agencies. The coordination points include:

  • Collection of existing data/information including the vision and needs for this corridor
  • Development, evaluation, and screening of initial concepts
  • Refinement of preferred alternative.

The first public meeting introduced the study and allowed the public to submit comments that would be used in the development of alternatives for the plan. The meetings were held on  Feb. 20, 2018 and Feb. 21, 2018. If you were not able to attend the meetings, you can go to the online meeting here!

The second series of public meetings will focus on the alternative development and evaluation phase. The meetings are scheduled  for Jan. 30, 2019 and Jan. 31, 2019.
