Coming Soon! New Paso del Norte Trail Segment on Magoffin Avenue
October 23, 2022
Progress continues to take place in the development of the Paso del Norte Trail. The Health Foundation has worked in collaboration with other organizations to develop a 68-mile county-wide trail in El Paso County. The goal is to create a regional landmark that promotes active transportation, preserve the history and culture of the region, supports economic development, and make healthy living the easy choice for our binational community.
Magoffin Shared-Use Path
The City of El Paso, in coordination with the Texas Department of Transportation, will install a shared used path along Magoffin Avenue between San Antonio and Cotton streets. The project will reduce travel lanes from three lanes to two lanes to reduce traffic on Magoffin and will provide residents in the neighborhood with options to exercise and enjoy the outdoors.
The Magoffin Shared-Use Path is a critical segment of the Paso del Norte Trail that will connect Downtown with the El Paso Zoo, Medical Center of the Americas, and existing Paso del Norte trail segments in the Mission Valley.
