El Paso, Texas – Scenic Drive will close for a few hours on Friday, November 20, 2020 to allow Streets and Maintenance Department crews to repair potholes.
The repairs will be conducted from 6 a.m. to noon. Motorists are encouraged to avoid the area by taking alternate routes. The schedule may be modified due to weather or other unforeseen events.
Pothole repairs are part of the daily services provided by the Streets and Maintenance Department. The department has made significant strides in recent years in the area of pothole repairs by implementing performance improvement methodologies from Lean Six Sigma. These methodologies helped the department increase the amount of pothole repairs it conducts by refining its processes and eliminate waste.
Prior to these process improvements, approximately 20,000 potholes were repaired on an annual basis. Now nearly 80,000 pothole repairs are completed on an annual basis.
